36 days of type 2019
This year was my first time participating in #36daysoftype.
36 days of type is a project that invites designers, illustrators and graphic artists to express their particular interpretation of the letters and numbers of Roman/English Alphabet.
For this challenge I decided to design alphabets around themes that children can connect with. I wanted it to be a playful way of helping children identify each individual letter-form. I also used words associated with corresponding alphabet to come up with each illustration ideas. For numerals I tried to incorporate the form of the numeral along with the count of the corresponding numeral.
I began with making a note of words associated with each alphabet.
Then I tried to come up with ideas around these groups of words.
Though I didn't use each idea that I came up with but it definitely helped me as a starting point while sketching.
Here are some of the sketches:
The final illustrations:
