HDS is thrilled to be hosting April’s edition of #tdktuesdays! Join us next Tuesday at to kick off the sixth edition of 36 Days of Type! There will be plenty of cheap drinks and a few drawing materials if you can’t source your own. Digital and analogue tools welcome – there’s plenty of space for all kinds of experimentin’.
Come flex your type skills!
36 Days of Type (@36daysoftype) is a project that invites designers, illustrators and visual artists to express their interpretation of the letters and numbers of our alphabet. The challenge is to design a letter or number for each day of the 36 days. Participants share their artworks via Instagram by uploading their entries with the project hashtag #36daysoftype and daily hashtag #36days_[Letter/Number]. From all daily entries, a curated selection will be published on the 36 Days of Type Instagram account (169k followers!).
This is a chance to get a head start on your first few letters if you think you’re up for the challenge! If you want to participate for a few days or even just a single letter you can too. If you don’t want to draw but feel like some quality banter on your Tuesday night, that’s good too.
Not sure what #TDKtuesdays is all about? It’s a no-pressure, beginners welcome, hi-fives encouraged anti-networking event on the first Tuesday of every month.
We’ve decided here at The Design Kids HQ that there is waaaay too much emailing and not enough socialising. So roll on #TDKtuesdays, where every month our fabulous TDK City hosts across the globe organise everything from free workshops to panel discussions, to design pub trivia, to studio tours with some of our fave industry peeps, and heaps more.
It’s a great place for design students, graduates and professionals to meet other design students, graduates and professionals, have a chat, swap notes, get involved and just generally build a bigger and better design community in their cities. If you are shy and “networking” (dirty word) is hard, this is an easy place to start. Grab a friend and come say hi!
