Hard to ignore the beautiful hand-lettered alphabet created by Cleveland-based freelance illustrator and designer, Nicholas Matej. The letters and numbers are his contribution to the 36 Days of Type project. His work is influenced by nostalgia, craft and the desire to push the limits of his own creativity through new ideas. More of his work can be seen on his website, Instagram, Behance and Dribble. Some of his designs can be purchased on Big Cartel and on Etsy.
