ABOUT







Sanchit Sawaria

Graphic design graduate of the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, who is from New Delhi. In 2012, during his studies, he created Kathan Devanagari and Akhand Devanagari, which can be bought at the Indian Type Foundry. In 2013, Akhand was extended to cover Bengali, Malayalam and Tamil as well. In 2015, Akhand appeared at MyFonts, where we learn that Satya Rajpurohit is the designer, so it is unclear who did what. As of 2018, Akhand covers all of India's 11 writing systems.

In 2013, Sanchit outperformed the Germans in their own craft when he developed the ornamental blackletter typeface Black Diamond. Darkstone (2014) is a hybrid blackletter display font that combines Fraktur and Old English.

In 2014, Sanchit Sawaria and Jyotish Sonowal finished the free Google Web Font Khand, an 8-style family of compact mono-linear fonts with very open counter forms. Developed for display typography, the family is primarily intended for headline usage. Its Latin is from Satya Rajpurohit, and Khnad carries the Indian Type Foundry label.
