ABOUT







Aleksandra Korolkova

Graduate of Moscow University of Printing Arts in 2006 where she studied under Alexander Tarbeev. She teaches type design and typography there. In 2007, her book for Russian students on typography was published (English title: Alive Typography). She received many awards for her work and is a frequent speaker at type design conferences. In particular, she received the prestigious Prix Charles Peignot in 2013. After that she became Type Director at ParaType in Moscow.

Designer of the beautiful Cyrillic serif family Leksa (a winner at Paratype K2009) and the accompanying Leksa Sans family from 2004 until 2007. This was followed by equally gorgeous families such as Fence (2009, an ultra-fat artistic beauty). Skoropix is an experimental pixel typeface done with FontStruct.

She also made Belladonna (2008, a stunning modern typeface for Latin and Cyrillic; a winner at Paratype K2009 and Grand Prize winner at Granshan 2011), Skoropix (with FontStruct), and the experimental typeface Cless (2009). She spoke about Cyrillic at ATypI 2008 in St. Petersburg. She received a TypeArt 05 award for the display family Fourty-nine face. Alternate URL.

At MyFonts, one can buy Gorodets [2009: a Russian decoration typeface based on traditional wood-painting style from the town Gorodets on the Volga river, Russia], Leksa and Leksa Sans], Blonde Fraktur (2010: written with a quill by Alexandra Korolkova and prepared in digital form by Alexandra Pushkova), Airy (2010, a curly script), Airy Pictures (2010, animal and plant dingbats), Bowman (2010: a blackboard children's script), PT Serif (2011, Paratype's superfamily of 38 fonts, co-designed with Vladimir Yefimov and Olga Umpeleva; Open Font Library link), PT Circe (2011, a geometric sans family with a neat Thin weight; Third Prize for Cyrillic text typefaces at Granshan 2011), and Cless (2010: ultra fat and counterless).

Together with Isabella Chaeva, she made PT Mono (2012, Google Web Fonts and Open Font Library).

In 2012, Vasiliy Biryukov and Alexandra Korolkova co-designed the Christmas dingbat font Gingerbread House, together with a plump display face, Gingerbread.

In 2013, Vasily Biryukov and Alexandra Korolkova co-designed the soft roundish sans typeface Kiddy Kitty (link).

In 2014, she cooperated with Maria Selezenava on a revamped Journal Sans typeface at Paratype, called Journal Sans New (Latin and Cyrillic). This geometric sans in the style of Erbar Grotesk and Metro Sans is a major extension of the Journal Sans typeface (1940-1956, SPA, in metal form, and 1990s in digital form). Still in 2014, she co-designed Stem, a geometric large x-height Latin / Cyrillic sans serif with optical sizing, with Isabella Chaeva and Maria Selezeneva at Paratype. This was followed in 2015 by Stem Text.

In 2015, she and Alexander Lubovenko co-designed Circe Rounded, which is an extension of her earlier Circe typeface (2011), both published by Paratype. Still in 2015, Alexandra Korolkova and Alexander Lubovenko published Aphrosine at Paratype, a typeface based on pointed pen script and situated somewhere between handwriting and calligraphy. Many alternatives and smart OpenType features help Aphrosine look like real handwriting.

Codesigner of Kudryashev Display (2015, Isabella Chaeva, Alexandra Korolkova and Olga Umpeleva). Kudryashev Display is a set of light and high-contrast typefaces based on Kudryashev text typeface. In addition to Kudryashev Display and Kudryashev Headline typefaces, the type family includes also two Peignotian sans-serif typefaces of the same weight and contrast, with some alternates. The serif styles were designed by Olga Umpeleva in 2011, the sans styles were created by Isabella Chaeva in 2015 with the participation of Alexandra Korolkova.

In 2016, she designed FF Carina, a delicate and absolutely stunning decorative didone.

In 2018, Alexandra Korolkova and Manvel Shmavonyan designed Fact at Paratype. Fact (2018) is based on Frutiger. The Fact type system contains 48 upright styles with variations in width and weight and eight italics of normal width. At the end of 2018, Alexandra Korolkova, Alexander Lubovenko, and the Paratype team finished Six Hands, which is a collection of six hand-crafted typefaces: Black, Brush, Chalk, Marker, Condensed and Rough.
