‘365 Days of Design’ is an experimental project set up by Sydney-based British designer Dominic Tunstall with an aim to investigate perfectionism – an annoying quest for the best; the part that tells us that nothing we do will ever be good enough. To maintain a consistent workflow as a designer, Tunstall has been creating a new design everyday, without fail, in attempt to overcome the fears and frustration of pursuing perfection within his practice.
Every so often, attention to detail can be both a blessing and a curse for designers. To help assess a level of perfectionism, Dominic Tunstall has set himself a challenge and has been experimenting with design, particularly in the realm of logo design, typography and digital, depending on what what inspires him for the day.
Good news is you can now get involved in the project. Tunstall has decided to publish a book at the end of his journey showcasing all of his designs as well as his methods and challenges overcome along the way. He is now inviting designers to collaborate with him and create something different every day for up to a week. To get in touch with him, please click here!
‘Great work comes with making constant mistakes, experiencing trial and error and letting go of making everything pixel perfect.’ – Dominic Tunstall.
