Logotypes

Some of my logotypes that I like the most. I made them occasionally during last 4 years.


Fonts

Rayon Text

For years I was looking for a typeface to replace Arial, especially in bold titles. I made my own version. Rayon is a sans-serif typeface in four weights, all with small caps. This typeface intended for heading text, large inscriptions and logotypes. I also tried to avoid condensed effect, of which some text fonts are exposed to (as it seems to me).

My initial design was a bit more wavy and fancy. I tested it for some time and decided to made more ‘texty’ version. I’m still developing it, working on condensed versions, light and black weights, and Cyrillic alphabet.

Sans serif version of PMN Caecilia (by Matthias Noordzij)

Two years ago I got my hands on Amazon Kindle and found there PMN Caecilia, pretty cool slab typeface. I noticed that reading books in Cyrillic wasn’t an easy task. It happens because Cyrillic letters has much more serifs in average, due to such letters as ‘н’, ‘п’, ‘ы’ and so on. Caecilia has big serifs which not work well in case of Cyrillic text. Shortly after I decided to make a stub of Caecilia with no serifs — just to have a little fun.
