  • Notable (2018, Google Fonts). Co-designed by Eli Block, Hana Tanimura and Noemie Le Coz, the art deco typeface Notable is an uppercase sans serif display font; its letterforms are based on those found on U.S. currency. Notable was designed for Notable Women, an initiative by former Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios. Notable Women is an augmented reality experiment that lets anyone see 100 historic American women where they have historically been left out: U.S. currency.
  • Gene (2018). A small, round text typeface for print and web.
  • In 2019, Niki Polyocan and Eli Block co-designed the free Google web font Lacquer. Github link. Lacquer is an expressive display font featuring heavy drips and dozens of alternate glyphs. Lacquer was hand drawn using a paint pen by Niki Polyocan and was extrapolated and finished by Eli Block at Google Creative Lab.
