ABOUT







Ilya Ruderman

Russian type design graduate of the Moscow State University of the Printing Arts (2002) and Type & Media at KABK in Den Haag, The Netherlands. Cofounder in 2005 of Daily Type. Type professor of considerable influence, who teaches at the British Higher School of Art and Design in Moscow since 2008. Creator of typefaces such as Praline Pro (Paratype, 2006-2007, a retro script; award winner at Paratype K2009), Big City Grotesque (which also won an award at Paratype K2009), Best Life Serif (codesigned with Yuri Ostromentsky, which also won an award at Paratype K2009) and Beetlejuice Script (his fourth awarded typeface at Paratype K2009). Ilya Ruderman and Paul Barnes published Austin and Austin Cyrillic in 2007-2009 at Commercial Type, which writes Designed for British style magazine Harper's & Queen, Austin is a loose revival of the typefaces of Richard Austin of the late 18th century for the publisher John Bell. Working as a trade engraver Austin cut the first British modern and later the iconoclastic Scotch Roman. Narrow without being overtly condensed, Austin is a modern with the styling and sheen of New York in the 1970s.

In 2010, Ilya Ruderman spearheaded an extensive project for traffic signage and information in Moscow called Permian. The Permian family has slab, sans and serif components. Permian won Second Prize in the Cyrillic typeface competition at Granshan 2011, and won an award at Modern Cyrillic 2014.Free download at Open Font Library.

Ilya's Meteor Script (2011) won Third Prize in the display text category at Granshan 2011.

In 2014, Ilya Ruderman and Yury Ostromentsky founded CSTM. In 2015, Ilya and Yury published Kazimir, a didone typeface family for Latin and Cyrillic, taking as a model the typeface used in The History of Russian Philology by P. N. Polevoy (1900, A. F. Marx Publishing House). It was extended in 2017 to Kazimir Text.

In 2016, Ilya Ruderman and Olga Pankova published Big City Grotesque Pro at CSTM Fonts. Ilya Ruderman created the first version of (the humanist sans) BigCity Grotesque for Bolshoi Gorod magazine (Big City). It was the first magazine sans serif with Cyrillic ligatures, and won an award in 2009 in the international competition, Modern Cyrillic 2009. In the 2016 version, by Olga Pankova, the shapes of the letters have been updated, and there are new upright and italic styles, small capitals and new ligatures and non-alphabetic symbols.
