Pavel Lipcean

Chisinau, Moldova-based creator of Corporation Font (2011), an all caps sans face: I began building this font when I felt lack of business class type of fonts that should be professional, straight and legible. The font gives a feeling of power, confidence and quality.

In 2014, he designed the minimal sans typeface family Englandia.
