Introducing Retro51's 36 Weeks of Type Challenge: Unleashing Creativity Letter by Letter

Ignite your creativity and dive into a world of hand lettering while using your Retro51s! Join alongside the Retro team as we put our writing instruments to work in the the 36 Weeks of Type Challenge! Inspired by the beloved 36 Days of Type, this challenge invites designers, calligraphers, and penthusiasts alike to join us on a journey through the alphabet, one letter and number at a time, every Saturday for 36 weeks. 

The Retro design team kicked off the challenge on May 18th, sharing their interpretations of each letter through hand-drawn illustrations and playful typographic experiments. We invite you to join us, whether you're a seasoned professional or just starting out. It’s a fun exercise and may inspire a new hobby.

To participate, create your interpretation of the weekly letter and share it on social media with the hashtag #Retro51Type. Let your imagination run wild and celebrate your love for hand lettering or with us. We will feature select entries here every week so stay tuned to this blog post and our social media for updates, inspiration, and a front-row seat to all the creativity in the 36 Weeks of Type challenge. Together, let's make each letter shine!

Letter A: 05/18/24 
Letter B: 05/25/24
