45 Days of Khmer Type

45 Days of Khmer Type, inspired by the popular 36 Days of Type, is a new project that aims to promote Khmer type design, lettering, and calligraphy. In its first year, it received around six hundred submissions from more than twenty designers, who were interviewed by five different press outlets. 45 Days of Khmer Type is the first campaign in Cambodia to bring the importance of type, as well as the art of designing type, to the public’s attention. It was considered a success right out of the gate, even if there were a few challenges to deal with along the way. Sovichet Tep recounts the beginnings (and ups and downs) of this project, which he views as a positive step in building an active type-design community in Cambodia.
