ABOUT







Manosij Sarkar

Graphic designer studying at the University of the Arts in London in 2012. In 2012, Manosij carried out a bilingual stencil experiment: This is an experiment on bilingual stenciled typography and different shapes. The stencil consists of six simple shapes which can be combined to produce Latin script in upper & lower case along with Devanagari script.

He drew a useful world map of traffic typefaces. Yatrakshar (2012) is a prototype of a set of bilingual stenciled typeface for the transport system in Maharashtra (a state in western side of India). It supports Latin and Devanagari script and covers the English, Hindi and Marathi languages used in the state of Maharashtra. The type is based on Britain's Transport typeface by Margaret Calvert and Jock Kinneir.

His last typeface of 2012 is Grid, which is designed on the basis of a 3d octagonal grid pattern.

In 2013, Manosij created Tinsel Town, a school project at IIT Guwahati for Prof. G. V. Sreekumar (IIT Bombay), which is supposed to be used as a masthead.
