Happy new year!



A year of neglect. Neglect for the blog, but focus instead on research, learning to see, learning to draw, meeting amazing professionals in the field of typeface design, and making some of the best friends of my life. I hope that my year as an MATD student is just a starting point.

So, my friends, I will be back to my old routine - this time, while working a typeface designer in NYC - sharing Indic script-related discoveries on ye olde blog. This time, to a higher academic standard, I hope. ;)

While the new posts are cookin', take a peek at the Indic script typefaces created by this years' University of Reading MATD (Master of Art in Typeface Design) students.

Formal, a Latin/Devanagari book typeface by Marc Weymann, typeface designer from Liechtenstein.
Frijky, a Latin/Bengali newspaper/magazine typeface by Neelakash Kshetrimayum, designer extraordinaire from India.
Katari, a Latin/Devanagari book typeface by... me.

फिर मिलेंगे, मेरे दोस्ती

welcome back. I miss your blog. These typefonts look good. I've been really frustrated trying to look for cool typefonts online in Devangari and have only come across mundane, monotonous typefonts, it all look the same. It's frustrating as hell. so I often have to go into Illustrator and create my own typefont and it ends up looking terrible :-/

Thanks for coming back. By the time I came across your blog, you had already taken your hiatus.

I take more of an interest in calligraphy rather than typography, but I'm loving how fast the typography industry has been moving over the past couple of years.

I do have a question though - how did you learn the scripts? I tried learning the Gujarati script (my family being originally from Gujarat) but gave up very quickly.
