#The100DayProject 2016

The100DayProject_ 2016

Some of you might remember that last year I challenged myself with #The100DayProject? For 100 days I posted a photo featuring a triangle to my Instagram account, with weekly round ups on the blog too; #100daysoftriangles was probably the biggest challenge I’ve ever set myself. But I’m so glad that I did…

I’ve managed to keep my blog running for 7 years now, but other than that I’ve never really stuck at anything for a long period of time.

#The100DayProject was a roller coaster of emotion for me. I wanted to improve my photography, do something creative everyday and learn to be less of a perfectionist/ precious about what I put out into the world. It helped me to just put things out there, make faster decisions and engage/inspire a new community of triangle lovers. I loved the challenge, but I hated the challenge when it was hard.

The main challenge was posting A LOT more than I would usually, but without sacrificing the quality of the images. Sure, I did post a few things that I wasn’t 100% happy with, but as an overall set I think #100daysoftriangles looks pretty impressive.

And I wasn’t the only one to think so – #100daysoftriangles was featured in the official #The100DayProject newsletter as one of artist Lisa Congdon’s top picks:

As well as Day 45 (the angle poise lamp) being featured on the Instagram blog:

Not too shabby, especially considering I probably only had around 500 Instagram followers at this point. I’m very proud of what I achieved with #100daysoftriangles but now #The100DayProject is back for 2016 I’m faced with a bit of a dilemma.

Despite its popularity I don’t think I should continue #100daysoftriangles this year:ย I’m happy with it, I want to put a line under it and I also fear that anything I do in 2016ย will just be compared to the 2015 version. But what should I choose instead?

PLEASE let me know your suggestions: typography? colours? pattern? – I feel that these are all too general for me!

EDIT: I’ve chosen #100DaysofGraphique to include Graphic Design, Graphic patterns, Graphic colours, Graphic anything… as a little behind the scenes of my life as a creative ๐Ÿ™‚ And of course, it’s a nod to my blog ๐Ÿ˜‰ Follow me @natasha_nuttall and #100DaysofGraphique

    I just blogged about the same thing today, haha! I think I’m going to join, but I’m not sure about how to challenge myself. I was thinking maybe nature because I like to be inspired by nature, but that feels kinda too general for me too. And like everything I do is inspired by nature anyway. And then I was thinking just drawing because I want to practice my drawing skills but ehh I don’t know. Or the colour blue! I love blue. Triangles was a great theme! What do you like more than triangles then? If you try to think of it that way… Do you have a specific colour you like or something like that? I don’t know! It’s hard haha. ๐Ÿ™

      HOW WEIRD! ha Great minds, hey? Nature sounds good… would look lovely if you live somewhere leafy and green? My advice would be to set yourself a challenge but not TOO much of a challenge. If there is something you do or see everyday that would be ideal. So like #100daysofbreakfast … you get the idea. Blue would be a good one – lots of options for that! Haha what do I like more than triangles? Nothing!? ha Yeah maybe a colour is a good route to fo down… I’m a bit worried about changing my feed dramatically though because I don’t want to lose my current followers… OH THE DECISIONS!

    OOH this sounds fun – although I can’t think of a single thing!!! I love the idea of this though, and your triangle challenge is so incredible!

    HI, this sounds like a great idea! I think I may join in if I can think of a good idea. At the moment very time I go on holiday I keep a foot diary #nitalsfootdiary (photos of my feet with nice surroundings) I may do this here for a 100 days.

    I absolutely love this idea but I am so all over the place I have no idea what I would do!! If you have any suggestions hit me up I love a challenge.

    I’m so in. I’ve got my idea, my hashtag and everything!

    Hi Natasha! I will be taking part and I’m loving your triangle idea! I’ve never taken part in anything like this before and I will however, most likely be drawing or painting for 100 days. I love a challenge and if I start something, I like to commit and start what I finish, so to speak. What I’ll draw, will depend on what inspires me when I wake up in the morning ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ll be looking out for you and I’m looking forward to seeing what you do!
