ABOUT







Torleiv Sverdrup

Norwegian freelance graphic designer since the mid 1980s. He joined the P22 crew in 2008. His fonts there:

  • Late November (2008) is a transitional Antiqua-inspired type design made for text and display.
  • Hoy (2008) is a decorative semi-uncial font whose name derives from one of the Orkney Islands.
  • Spiggie (2008) is an art deco sans-serif, named for a Shetland beach.
  • P22 Mai Pro (2009) is a new transitional antiqua.
  • P22 Coda Pro (2009) is a simple slightly artsy sans family.
  • P22 Kirkwall Pro (2010) is a flared serif design.
  • P22 Ornes Pro (2010) is inspired by the runic alphabet with ornamentation based on the woodcarvings of the Urnes Stave Church (Norway), an old wooden church dating back to 1150 CE.
  • P22 Speyside (2010) is a round, curved and controlled sans serif with an additional set of decorated uppercase letters, initials and small caps. The font is inspired by the local handicraft at a small place in Tobago called Speyside, the batik in particular. The delightful P22 Speyside Light Initials typeface is for fish lovers.
  • P22 Foxtrot and P22 Foxtrot Sans (2010) are large transitional families---the sans is really a hybrid with a serif, flared and all [not to be confused with any of the three older Foxtrot typefaces, by Ross Milne, Tom C. Lai or J. Marquez].
  • P22 Ainabee (2016). An art deco typeface family that has some stencil styles.
