If you receive something important in january, and you wanna talk about it, you should do it. In january. I would do the same, but since I'm me I procrastinated it for a bit, and now I'm ready. At the end of march.
So now this could look odd (now imagine Bon Jovi singin' It's my Life).
Basically, in january I received the material prizes of the Typography Annual of 2018 by Communication Arts Magazine.
I won one for Rio Grande, and I've spammed enough around the socials about the fact. The project was far notorious for a small fish like me, being shown at the Venice Art Biennale for a client as famous as Yuri Ancarani, and so on.
36 days of type 2017 was more an underdog like me, but I enjoyed a lot making it, and its final result. One because 36 days of type is a project that has a special place in my heart, second because I developed a complex geometric and chromatic scheme to design the letters that took me blood sweat and exhaustive gridwork.
The project didn't have a lot of feedback, but I loved it like a difficult son anyway.
It got potential, for me, I didn't give a fuck about the others.
In the end, I won my second prize for the Annual with it.
ps. probably I procrastinated so much to post it cause I suck at making this home photo reportages, but also cause the 2018 edition of 36 days starts next week, and this excites and scares me as well.
