ABOUT







Karandash [Vassil Nikolaev Kateliev]

Karandash is a type and graphic foundry in Varna, Bulgaria, established in 2010 by designer Vassil Kateliev (b. 1980, Varna). The Fontmaker series is a collaborative project with Jordan Jelev, a well known Bulgarian calligrapher and cult wine label designer. The type designs are done on paper, using traditional calligraphic and artistic methods and then digitally recreated.

Typefaces: Myriad Pro Bulgarian and Cyrillic (2011), Rotis Semi Serif Bulgarian Cut (2011), and FM Clog (2011, with Jordan Jelev, done at The Fontmaker: has Openface, Shadowed and Engraved styles). Callista is a fat cursive typeface that was inspired by the work of François Boltana in the early 1970s and of Milka Peykova in late 1970s.

Gaytan (which means braid in Bulgarian) is a sans and serif family created in 2012. It was inspired by Old Church Slavonic Cyrillic, Bulgarian Ustav and the Russian Vyaz stiles, as well as the avant-garde works of Bulgarian typedesigners in late 1970s. But the result is definitely Victorian. He closes 2012 with Estimo, an organic typeface family for Latin and Cyrillic that has no diagonal strokes.

FM Bolyar (2012) is a copperplate typeface jointly designed by Jordan Jelev and Vassil Kateliev at The Fontmaker. See also the spurred version FM Bolyar Ornate Pro.

In 2013, Vassil Kateliev and Jordan Jelev codesigmned the lively script typeface FM Ephire, which comes with a useful caps companion, FM Ephire Frames.

In 2014, Kateliev designed a Valentine-inspired set of calligraphic ornaments, LoveHearts, Love Christmas (Christmas ornaments, done with Stella Ivanova Katelieva), and the humanist slab serif typeface Basil (the Regular weight is free). Basil won an award at Granshan 2014.

Typefaces from 2015: Sybilla (humanist slab serif, extended to Sybilla Pro in 2016, and Sybilla Multiverse in 2017). Sybilla Shade Pro is free.

Typefaces from 2017: Versatile Bold (a Latin / Greek / Cyrillic font family for layering with plenty of hatched, shadow, rust and 3d options; by Charles Borges de Oliveira and Vassil Kateliev).

In 2018, he designed Kometa together with Kiril Zlatkov. The 21-style Kometa (Latin and Cyrillic) is a modern sans serif font family with a geometric skeleton and a humanist soul. It has a unicase option and many alternates.
