ABOUT







Satya N. Rajpurohit

Satya is co-founder of the The Indian Type Foundry (ITF) in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India, in 2009. ITF is India's first digital type foundry providing Unicode compliant fonts. He studied at the National Institute of Design (NID) in India and interned with Linotype in Germany. He has also worked at Dalton Maag (London) and L2M3 (Stuttgart). He now works full time at ITF, creating original fonts in all the major Indian scripts along with their Latin companions. Satya studied graphic design at the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, India, where he specialized in motion picture graphics.

His type work includes ITF Devanagari (2001), this experimental display face (2006), this minimalist face (2007), this experimental sans (2007), Rail India (2007, an Indic simulation face) and this Devanagari (Hindi) typeface (2007). With Peter Bilak, he created Fedra Hindi (2010, ITF). In 2010, he received the SOTA Catalyst Award and published the Kohinoor family for Latin, Devanagari and Tamil.

In 2012, he designed the type family Engrez Sans. With Jyotish Sonowal, he designed the beautiful semi-calligraphic Tulika Bengali. It includes support for the Assamese, Bengali, Bishnupriya Manipuri, Garo, Kokborok, Meitei, and Mundari languages. Kohinoor Latin (2012) is a low-contrast humanist sans-serif suitable for both body and the display text.

The Indian Type Foundry published several typefaces at Google Web Fonts in 2014: Hind, Kalam, Karma, Teko and Rajdhani. Rajdhani is an Open Source typeface supporting both the Devanagari and the Latin scripts. The font family was developed for use in headlines and other display-sized text on screen. Its initial release includes five fonts. Satya Rajpurohit and Jyotish Sonowal developed the Devanagari component in the Rajdhani fonts together, while the Latin was designed by Shiva Nallaperumal.

In 2014, Sanchit Sawaria and Jyotish Sonowal finished the free Google Web Font Khand, an 8-style family of compact mono-linear fonts with very open counter forms. Developed for display typography, the family is primarily intended for headline usage. Its Latin is from Satya Rajpurohit, and Khnad carries the Indian Type Foundry label.

In 2015, Akhand (a condensed almost monoline sans that covers many Indic languages) appeared at MyFonts, where we learn that Satya Rajpurohit is the designer, but it is unclear who did what. That typeface was followed in 2016 by Akhand Soft.

Jyotish Sonowal extended Hind to the free 10-style Calcutta in 2015.
