Jad Limcaco of Design Informer might have very well just started a design movement. He wrote an article about designing something everyday for Smashing Magazine that spurred a great many people to create Posterous and Tumblr blog accounts for their brand new Project 365, a project where you do something consistent every single day of the year for 365 days. It is a very exciting prospect [at first] and if you are not careful, it is very very easy to get sucked into it [yep, I am a sucker through and through, as you will discover when you visit the 4th link in this post]. I first started entertaining the idea a few weeks ago when I finally got around to watching Julie & Julia [loved the movie, Amy Adams is a cutie, Meryl Streep bless her heart is a brilliant actress, but the ending lacked something for me]. As many of you know that I have a food blog too and I thought about doing a Project 365 on that blog. One recipe for each day with one gorgeous and delicious picture. Then I thought of doing a design Project 365. I have always wanted to give a name and face to all those quirky creatures that reside in my head. Vector characters! I kept knocking the idea around in my head till I saw Melanie and Srdjan’s blogs [links No 1 and 3 respectively] and I was suckered into it!
Today I have rounded up 11 awesome Project 365′s that I am following very closely and that show a lot of promise. It takes a lot of determination and gumption to stick it through as many of us will realize over the course of the project. But hey, what better exercise in self-discipline right? These 10 projects are from a variety of creative disciplines of the design spectrum and I hope they grow and provide a lot of inspiration to everyone that follows them.
