I took Design a Type challenge on Instagram and designed a Devanagari alphabet every day for 47 days inspired by the quintessential Indian truck type. I used Rajdhani from the Indian Type Foundry as my base type for this project, which I modified accordingly later. This project is called 47 Days of Devanagari, and I have sharply designed Devanagari letters in bright colours and elements from traditional Indian visual aesthetics.
Matchboxes are unique. Hence, I decided to use these devanagiri characters on them to give them a quirky and Indian look!

What’s Unique?
Since it was a part of a challenge, there are 47 designs available in this series, each inspired from the beautiful truck art of India.
