ABOUT







Quadrat Communications [David Vereschagin]

Born in Edmonton in 1957, David Vereschagin set up Quadrat Communications in Toronto (Quadrat Communications, 18 Grenville Street, Suite 1501, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M4Y 3B3). A graphic designer by profession, he has made a number of carefully crafted font families such as Spike, Ratcaps (free keycaps sample font available), MyAuntCelia, Farquharson, Clear Prairie Ornaments (1992), Clear Prairie Dawn. A free copy of Farquhason is here.

At MyFonts, one can buy Clear Prairie Dawn (Optima-like), Clear Prairie Ornaments, Farquharson (like wood type), My Aunt Celia, Ratcaps, Ratkeys, Spike, Toronto Subway (2004: based on the (art deco sans) lettering originally used for station identification and signage in the Toronto subway system, which first opened to the public in 1954. Developed from rubbings of the lettering on station walls and photographs of painted signage.) In 2008, he designed the cool constructivist poster family Kubrick, about the same time as Iconian Fonts' Kubrick family---I hope that they can settle the naming fight amicably. Behance link.
