Marvel/DC | Type Series By Deanne Fernandes

Deanne Fernandes is a Delhi based Design Enthusiast who has worked as a Communication Designer for almost 9 years now. The love for art and design in any form has excited her all her life. Participating in art activities at school and college level and winning accolades for the same, not to forget including a few national and international competitions, motivated her to take up new challenges in this field.

 

After completing her post-grad in advertising and PR, she worked at an ad agency, a design studio and freelanced for a year as well. She is presently the head of a creative group at a design studio for the last five years. She thoroughly enjoys creating corporate identities, packaging, campaigns, websites and much more at the studio!

 

As a communication designer, illustrator, hand letterer and dreamer, Deanne loves to experiment with new styles and finds inspiration everywhere. A long list of artists inspire her, she admires anyone from a well-known international artist to a street painter or a colleague at work to a 5-year-old. Every time she tries to master a style, she gets introduced to something new. It is amazing and challenging at the same time, a reason good enough to pick design for her career!

 

Deanne does not believe in sitting idle. Whenever she reaches home, she spends time with her family and gets right back to designing but this time, it is for herself!

Devoting time to do more personal artwork made her realize that she was getting better at her craft at work as well as receiving a great deal of satisfaction and happiness.

Fernandes’s personal projects range from themed typography series, illustrations and hand lettering which also includes the 36 days of type project.

The 36 days of type is a popular worldwide challenge that invites designers across nations to create 26 alphabet and numbers from 0-9, one for each of the 36 days.

She picked superheroes and super-villains of the Marvel and DC universe as her theme for this year. Extremely exciting at first glance, it turned out to be quite challenging to complete one every day. But the acknowledgements, on and off Instagram, support from family, colleagues and friends made up for all the amazing artwork. It also brought greater motivation and strength.

 

Deanne hopes life keeps surprising her with new opportunities so that she can surprise herself by becoming better every passing day.

The A-Z of a playlist | Type Series by Anushka

Anushka Tendolkar is a 20 year old communication design student with a keen interest in graphic design and is very passionate about photography. Born and brought up in Mumbai, Anushka has been in love with her city and all that it has to offer. She believes the city has made her the kind of person who just can’t sit idle because there’s so much to do and so little time. She always keeps her occupied by doing something or the other, trying to make the most of her day,everyday. Currently she is trying to experiment with her photography style and also get back into the habit of reading!

 

36 days of type is a worldwide challenge where designers and artists around the world recreate the 26 letters of the English alphabet and 0-9 numbers however they like it. Anushka was headstrong about taking up the challenge this year and decided to work with a theme which she just randomly decided would be her music playlist! Over the last couple of years, she has been introduced to some really great music and she thought it would be something she would enjoy doing throughout the challenge. Most of them were rock artists since rock is her favourite genre.

 

 

Anushka decided to do A-Z on her playlist excluding the numbers and posted them every day on Instagram for 26 days. She says it did get tough to keep up in the middle but everyone on her Instagram profile appreciated the project so much that it really kept her going. People were waiting for the next one every day and that made her really happy too. The best part she says was she would tag the artists for each letter and she actually got some recognition from the band ‘The script’ who started following her and liked her work; even ‘The Zombies’ reposted one of her letters on their official page so that was a really big deal for her.

 

The challenge was also a great learning process for her because she did get better at her skills by doing it every single day. Anushka usually sketches out what she visualises and then renders it digitally. So for most of these letters she had a rough sketch of how she wanted it to look and then went ahead with the digital part but some of them were just pure mix and match till they looked okay to her. All of them have been made by her on Adobe Photoshop. The series took Anushka a month to finish, since it was a letter a day with some delay here and there due to other commitments.

 

Anushka takes inspiration from everything and everyone around her. She does not have one idol as such because there are so many things to learn from so many people and places. But she says she is really Inspired by the idea of being so good at whatever she does that she gets actually recognised for her work while she is alive and hopefully makes a lot of money and buys herself tickets to wherever she wants to travel whenever she wants. Nevertheless, she wants to work hard like her parents and just be able to live life exactly the way she wants.
