Sometime in 2012 some designers from Melbourne put together a fun tumblr called Super Happy Tumblr Friends.
Each week comes with a new topic to interpret with an illustration. You have a week to respond with most designers (myself included) submitting their 600 x 400 .jpeg right on the deadline. Submissions are posted so we can all check out each others’ idea and there is a discussion on twitter to figure out the theme for next week.
This is really great.
I’m an advocate of twitter as a networking tool for designers and other creative types and this is an excellent offshoot. For me personally it’s a fun excuse to create something. Although it’s rare for a day to go by where I don’t open an Adobe product, I still enjoy mini projects like this.
Why not have a go yourself? I’d love to see what you make.
