ABOUT







Stefan Chirila

Canadian designer from Kitchener (b. 1984) now located in Washington, DC, and before that, in Reston, VA. He created the irregular handwriting font Stefan Handwrite (2006) and an untitled art nouveau typeface in 2014. In 2016, he created Tuscan, based on a scan from Epreuves des Caractères et Vignettes by Charles Derriey, 1839, Paris.

In 2019, he released the Viennese Secession typeface Mendelson, and wrote: Mendelson is an art nouveau-inspired typeface which is based on a design by Paul Lang (1877-1937). Originally the typeface was named Langschrift (meaning long type) and was released by the Flinsch foundry in Frankfurt am Main in 1905. With its rigorous verticals and squarish shapes Mendelson works best as a display typeface. Low contrasts and balanced proportions make this typeface both bold and elegant. It is best used when centered in symmetrical settings.
