Typographic CHRISTMAS Countdown
I always have the best of intentions when it comes to planning to do personal design projects in my spare time (when university work allows). Some how I always manage to keep putting them off (I am a master procrastinator at times). This Christmas I decided to set myself the task of trying to do a daily 'Typographic Christmas Countdown'. The basic idea was to post a typographic piece once a day on Instagram for the last twelve days leading up to Christmas day; it set me a daily deadline and allowed me to practice my hand lettering as well as giving me the excuse to combine it with some of the Christmas/wintery photography that I've taken over the past few years.
Overall it was quite a fun experience and allowed me to experiment and produce a decent quantity of work in a short space of time. I also learnt a few new texture and transparency tricks on Illustrator that will be useful in future! I would definitely like to do something similar again. Although I don't know if I could commit to the '365' type challenges I've seen others do on Instagram!
I hope you all had lovely family, friends and food filled Christmas'! Below are the final picks for each day of the countdown (I had a few variants for each day so I could decide last minute if I wanted to change them up before I posted them to Instagram).
