ABOUT







Ramakrishna Saiteja

Ramakrishna Saiteja (Bangalore, India) studied Graphic Design at DJ Academy of Design in Coimbatore, India. He did his final project with Indian Type Foundry (ITF). While at ITF, Ramakrishna designed a few Indic scripts, including Coorg Kannada, Coorg Kannada Sans, and a Latin type design. In collaboration with ITF colleagues Jonny Pinhorn and Nikhil Ranganathan, he worked on the Telugu and Kannada extensions for the ITF typeface Akhand.

Presently, Ramakrishna is working independently on another Classic Kannada type design and plans to pursue an MA in Visual Arts (Graphic Design and Visual Communication) at Academy of Arts, Architecture & Design in Prague. During his studies in Bangalore City, India, Ramakrishna Saiteja (b. 1994) created the monoline techno sans typeface Nova Gothic (2013). In 2015, he published Deccan at Indian Type Foundry. Deccan is loosely based on didones.

In 2016, Ramakrishna Saiteja and Shiva Nallaperumal published the free Kannada / Latin typeface family Kolar. Each font's character set includes 925 glyphs. This massive range supports hundreds of unique Kannada-script conjuncts. Kolar's Latin script characters are all modified from Pablo Impallari's Libre Baskerville series.

His Coorg Kannada typeface (2017) is designed for newsprint.

Winner of the SOTA Catalyst award in 2017. Indian Type Foundry link.
