ABOUT







Typeland [Alessia Mazzarella]

Italian-born graduate of the MATD program at the University of Reading, class of 2013. Before that, she received a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from Central Saint Martins, London and a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic and Multimedia Design from Sapienza, University of Rome. She currently lives and works in the UK.

For her graduation program, she created the typeface family Prakashan for Odia (Oriya) and Latin. The Latin comes in a low-contrast Light and a quite striking and lively high-contrast Black. Prakashan won an award at Granshan 2014.

Other typefaces by her include SMN (a display typeface that is based on metal letters located in Florence's Santa Maria Novella train station) and Xstitch (a multi-layered typeface designed as part of the One Day Font project while studying at Central Saint Martins, London).

In 2014, she created Rossella Hairline.

In 2015, with Jonathan Hill of The Northern Block, she designed Monsal Gothic, a modern gothic sans which was influenced by News Gothic, Benton and Whitney.

In 2016, she published the free angular Latin/Gurmukhi typeface Langar at Google Fonts. Github link.

FS Ostro (2018, at Fontsmith) is a modern typeface family in text and display versions. It brings warmth and fresh air to the cold Italian didones. Its more subdued and less contrasted text version was influenced by Scotch romans. There are also genetic elements of Spanish display types.

In 2020, she co-designed Marble with Vaibhav Singh at URW. Marble is part of Asterisk Type Collection by URW Type Foundry. Marble is a modern sans serif with a distinct character and comes in 108 styles plus variable fonts.
