36 Days of Type / Numbers by Daq – David Acevedo

36 Days of Type is a project that aims to allow artists to express their views and representation of letters and numbers for a period of time. To create one letter a day or one number a day. Let’s check out this art set! Enjoy!

“36 days of type/numbers” is my numbers proposal for the last edition “36 days of type” project. This is a project that invites designers, illustrators and graphic artists to express their particular view on letters and numbers of our alphabet. In 2015 edition, I have participated also with letters.

Exactly, 36 days. Participants are challenged to design a letter or a number each day.

The letters artwork doesn’t respond to a single idea. I wanted that the whole project was a volumetric exercise exploring different ways. During the day I thought what I could make. At night after work I invested 3 or 4 hours to complete the letter. It’s a very quick and spontaneous project. The numbers artwork had a different objective. In that case I wanted to prepare a series. I chose one letter and from that I made all numbers.

In general, I start with small sketches using a pencil and sketchpad. I carry on making little drawings until the idea shapes up. Once I’ve got a clear idea, I use Illustrator and Photoshop to produce the piece. With Illustrator, I make the shape and I use Photoshop to generate light, shadows, colors and textures.

I try to work hard and a lot of hours but enjoying with all I do. I think that it’s also important to make any project with excitement and love.
