This project was created for my personal growth and consists of hand-lettering a vocabulary word every day for a year. The goal is to improve my lettering skills while simultaneously learning 365 new words.
I was inspired by a project called The Daily Artifact, which was a personal challenge by Corey Fuller, a friend and former teacher of mine, to create a drawing, design, photograph, doodle, etc., every day for a year.
This project consisted of sketching a word daily and then at the end of each month, choose one of the sketches to create finished type on the computer. 1 year and 365 sketches later, these are the final 12 words.
