36daysoftype

I decided to start my own '36 days of type' project. I will use classic fonts to create graphic artworks and I'm gonna research history of the font :) For every letter I'm trying to create different visual styles from different eras of graphic design.

The project is still going on. (20/36)

If you want to know more about these classic typefaces check out my dribbble page...
