Paul Alan Grosse is a very prolific Gurmukhi type designer (among many other things, often technical things---check out his own computer-generated Sudoku and Kakuro puzzles, for example). He created over 200 free Gurmukhi typefaces:

  • Fonts from 2000: Cut-Out-PG, Jotter-PG, Gas-Plasma-PG (dot matrix), Typewriter-PG, Water-Rocket-PG, Handwritten-PG, MySchoolFont (2001, chalk on blackboard style).
  • Gurmukhi: In 2008, he made the Gurmukhi font families Bulara, Magaz (2008), Karmic Sanj (2007: advertized as a Gurmukhi mirror of Cimic Sans MS), Punjabi Typewriter, Gurmukhi Old Letterpress, Gurvetica A, Gurvetica (48 styles---like Helvetica for Gurmukhi), Dekho (2012), Dekho Naveen (2012), Rupe, Lanma (2007, with decorative tails), Choti (stylized script), Raaj (a handwritten style with tails), and Raajaa.
  • His Dave font family (2009) takes the Gurmukhi range but outputs Devanagari characters instead. This means that a piece of text written in Gurmukhi (using Unicode) can easily be displayed as Devanagari, simply by changing the font. Iragan does the opposite: it converts Devanagari to Gurmukhi.
  • Handwriting faces for Gurmukhi: GHW Adhiapak, GHW Dukandar, GHW Penti Akhari, GHW Purani Primer PDL, GHP Full (based on sign-writing). Purani Primer (2013) is a font based on a cursive design from a 100 year-old primer sent to him by Punjab Digital Library.
  • Uttar (2012) and Tsheg (2012): Gurmukhi fonts in the style of Tibetan. Tsheg also has Latin and makes a great oriental simulation typeface.
  • Gurmukhi fonts made in 2013: DIN 1451 Punjabi, Gubara (a balloon font), Modhera (in the style of Gujarati), Dwarka.
