ABOUT







Olga Umpeleva

Graduate of the Moscow State University of Printing Art. Designer of the free font Tagesschrift (2005, Yanone, done together with Jan Gerner, A. Korolkova and V. Yefimov). Fontdeck link, where she is credited with the Paratype typeface PT Sans (2010). PT Sans can also be downloaded at Alex Barakin's site, at Fontspace, at Github, and at CTAN. Open Font Library link. The companion family PT Serif is also at CTAN. The full family, co-designed with Alexandra Korolkova and Vladimir Yefimov, will set you back over 1000 dollars however.

Federico (2007) is based on the handwriting of Spanish poet and playwright Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936).

Pragmatica Slab (2011, Paratype, Olga Umpeleva and Vladimir Yefimov) was designed as a complement to the popular type family Pragmatica by Vladimir Yefimov and Isabella Chaeva (1989-2004) by the addition of square slab serifs. Paratype writes: Pragmatica Slabserif was designed as a complement to the popular type family Pragmatica by Vladimir Yefimov and Isabella Chaeva (1989-2004) by addition of square serifs. Inspired by Helserif (Phil Martin, 1978 [note from Luc to self: I think Paratype errs here, since Ed Kelton made Helserif in 1976]) which was formed in the same way by addition of square serifs to Helvetica (Eduard Hoffman and Max Miedinger, 1957). First sketches of Pragmatica Slabserif were created by Vladimir Yefimov in 1988 during development of Pragmatica. Olga Umpeleva designed the whole slabserif type family of six weights basing on that sketches.

She also did an upright connected educational script in 2011 at Paratype: Little Cecily (based on a Russian calligraphy sample book for primary schools, Propisi pryamogo pisma (Moscow, 1914)). Such scripts were implemented in school programs at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century.

In 2012, Olga published the curly upright script typeface Sevillana (Google Web Fonts, Brownfox Foundry) and the playful decorative typeface Henny Penny (Google Web Fonts and Brownfox).

Typefaces from 2013: ALS Schlange Sans (Art Lebedev Studio: a rich sans family with rounded terminals, and a toolbox "f"), ALS Schlange Slab.

Typefaces from 2015: 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. The typeface was released by ParaType in 2015. Still in 2015, she designed Federico (a typeface based on the handwriting of Spanish poet and playwright Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936)).

Typefaces from 2017: Fado (a formal broad nib calligraphic beauty).

Typefaces from 2018: Kelpie (an inky and a monoline pair of scripts).
