ABOUT







Nova Type Foundry [Joana Maria Correia da Silva]

Graduate of the University of Reading in 2011. Before that, Joana worked as an architect and graphic designer in Portugal. She currently lives in the UK and/or Porto, Portugal. Since 2011, she teaches type design at ESAD (Escola Superior de Artes e Design).

In 2010, under the supervision of Dino dos Santos at ESAD, Joana designed an unnamed bastarda / chancery typeface that is based on originals by Francisco Lucas.

Creator of the script typeface Violet (2011).

Artigo (2011) is an angular type family for Latin, Hindi and Greek that was created during her studies at Reading. Artigo won Second Prize for Greek typefaces at Granshan 2011. It also won an award at TDC Typeface Design 2018. In 2017, Ndiscovered published Artigo Global and Artigo Pro. Artigo Display followed in 2018. In 2020, Nova Type Foundry republished Artigo, Artigo Display.

In 2012, she published the didone text typeface Cantata One at Google Web Fonts. Quando (Google Web Fonts) is a serifed text typeface inspired by brushy handwritten letters seen on an Italian poster from the second world war.

In 2013, at MSTF Partners, a Portuguese consultancy, she created Writers Font (2013). This is a script typeface by Joana Correia that combines the handwriting of famous Portuguese authors. For example the A is by José Luis Peixoto, the B by José Saramago and the C by António Lobo Antunes. Link with the story.

Still in 2013, she showed an unnamed unicase sans typeface and participated in the Canberra typeface competition.

In 2014, she made the round connected script typeface Jasmina FY (Fontyou), the Google Web Font Karma (for Latin and Devanagari: Karma is an Open Source multi-script typeface supporting both the Devanagari and the Latin script. It was published by the Indian Type Foundry; see also Open Font Library), and Canberra FY (at Fontyou: a short-serifed typeface family).

In 2015, Adrien Midzic and Joana Correia co-designed Saya Serif FY. Still in 2015, she published the humanist sans typeface family Vyoma at Indian Type Foundry.

In 2016, Joana Correia and Natanael Gama co-designed the Latin / Tamil typeface Arima Madurai (free at Google Fonts). Their Arima Koshi (2016) covers Tamil, Malayalam and Latin.

In 2016, Joana Correia and Natanael Gama co-designed the connected typeface Tidy Script at Indian Type Foundry.

In 2017, Joana published Laca Pro: Laca is a semi-sans serif inspired by retro Portuguese packaging of soaps. Laca is the Portuguese word for hairspray. Free download. Laca Text (2018) is a sans serif version of Laca. For Nova Type versions, see Laca (2019) and Laca Pro (2020). The latter versions cover Greek and Cyrillic as well.

In 2018, Joana published the soft script typeface Lemongrass: It was inspired by brush lettering and the sea and the strong winds that exist in Porto.

At Future Fonts, she released the didone typeface Alga (2019), in which ball terminals are replaced by genuflections.

She was the principal designer of the sans family Varta (2019, Sorkin Type), which is available from Google Fonts and Github. Assistance of Viktoriya Grabowska and Eben Sorkin.

Typefaces from 2020: Loretta (Future Fonts: a serif typeface).
