36 DAYS OF TYPE 2018


Every year the design world is pulled in by the 36 days of type.

Quote from their website:
„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 our alphabet.“

Since this all happened WHILE I was working (and many hours into the night) I couldn’t manage to do the whole alphabet & numbers. But the concept was valid. Ballon + animal + Letter/Number.

I used Maxon Cinema 4D to model and sculpt the basics shapes of the balloonimals. EJ from eyedesign is explaining the basics here https://vimeo.com/210635351 . I had to make them editable in the final process and sculpt more or less wrinkles afterwards. I used area lights to block out all reflections. This was rendered with the standard renderer from Cinema 4D.
