Adolphe Mouron Cassandre

His real name is Adolphe Jean-Marie Mouron, and he was born in Kharkiv, Ukraine in 1901. He committed suicide in Paris in 1968, after the rejection of one of his innovative designs by a German publisher. After studies at the Ecoles des Beaux Arts in Paris, Cassandre adopted France as his country. He produced his first poster Au Bucheron at 22, and became a successful and influential poster artist best known for his epoch-defining travel posters and for his advertisements for products such as Dubonnet. The consummate art deco artist, he tried to create posters for people who did not try to see them. In 1936 he traveled to America to work on several projects. While there he designed several surrealistic covers for Alexey Brodovitch at Harper's Bazaar. In addition, he created for NW Ayers, the classic eye of the Ford billboard and several pieces for the Container Corporation of America. His career as a poster designer ended in 1939 when he changed disciplines and became a stage, set and theatrical designer. Most of Cassandre's work was done at Fonderie Deberny&Peignot. The 1960s work was at Olivetti.

He created these typefaces:

  • Bifur (1928-1929). See the digital form by Richard Kegler (P22, 2004).
  • Acier Noir (1930-1936). His poster Nord Express (1927) (Acier Noir really) inspired Nick Curtis to draw Nord Express NF (2003). In 2010, and then again in 2019, Jean-Baptiste Levée designed Acier (Noir and Gris) as a revival of Acier. Other revivals include HFF Black Steel and Ferrus (2010, Gert Wiescher).
  • Peignot (1933-1937, designed with Charles Peignot for Deberny & Peignot). Typefaces like this are called Peignotian on my site; some are calling them modulated sans typefaces. Buy a digital version from Linotype. See this poster by Matt Blaisdell, this poster by Julieta Liberson, and this poster by Guillaume Bret. Noteworthy digital revivals include the rounded multi-style family Pinot Grigio Modern (2014, Alan Meeks) and Greyhound (2012, SoftMaker).
  • Touraine (1947). Done with Charles Peignot, it is based on a design of Guillermo Mendoza. This Peignotian typeface was revived ca. 2014 by Clément Bonnetin.
  • Cassandre (1968). Cassandre (1968) was largely unfinished, after having been turned down by Berthold and Olivetti (and was possibly the cause of his suicide). It was finished in a revival of sorts by Thierry Puyfoulhoux (2003).
  • Graphica81 (1960).
  • Cassandre Initials (1927). This artsy typeface was digitized by Gerd Wiescher at Elsner&Flake.

Books: A.M. Cassandre, "L'architecture, l'art que je préfère à tous les autres." (2008) is a small PDF file/essay by Estienne student Antoine Stevenot. In 1988, Letraset published Baseline 10 The Cassandre issue, a fifty-page magazine volume edited by Mike Daines and art directed by Newell and Sorrell.


  • Blaie Cendrars: Le spectacle est dans la rue, Montrouge, Draegr Frères, 1935. Has Cassandre's posters.
  • Paul van Capelleveen, Sophie Ham, Jordy Joubij: Voix et visions. La Collection Koopman et l'Art du Livre français, Zwolle, Waanders, 2009.
  • Peter van Dam, Philip van Praag: A.M. Cassandre en zijn Nederlandse opdrachtgevers 1927-1931: Catalogue raisonné. Abcoude, Uitgeverij Uniepers, 1999.
  • Henri Mouron: Cassandre, London, Thames and Hudson, 1985.
  • Maximilien Vox: A.M. Cassandre, peintre d'affiches, St-Gall, Zollikofer, 1948.

Now it is equipped with Slavic Cyrillic and Monotonic Greek.

[Konstantin Golovchenko]

Ukrainian type foundry founded in 2012 by Viktor Kharyk and Konstantin Golovchenko in Odessa. In 2014, they published the Latin / Cyrillic typefaces Arsena (original from 2013 by Vikto Kharyk), Caslon 1821 (Italian typeface by Viktor Kharyk and Konstantin Golovchenko), 2 Quadro (octagonal) and Surf Serif Pro (sharp-edged and modular; original from 2013 by Viktor Kharyk).

Caslon 1821 revives a typeface of Caslon & Livermore, 1821. It covers Latin, Cyrillic and Hebrew.

Kyiv (2010, Viktor Kharyk) combines elements of antiqua, Cyrillic, and carving into widely usable Latin and Cyrillic text family. Kyiv was awarded the 2nd prize in the text font category in the first Ukrainian typeface competition Ruthenia in 2010.

In 2016, Henadij Zarechnjuk and Viktor Kharyk designed Dnipro for Apostrof. The Cyrillic version of this font follows Ukrainian decorative traditions, initiaited by Georgy Narbut and Mark Kirnarsky in the 1920s and continued until the 1980s. The Latin part has an uncial character.

In 2020, Konstantin Golovchenko and Kyrylo Tkachov released the sans typeface family Rock Star at AlfaBravo.

In 2020, Viktor Kharyk, Henadij Zarechnjuk and Konstantin Golovchenko released an update and extension of Vasyl Homenko's metal Ukrainian typeface from 1963-1967, called Homenko.

A special project published in 2020: 1812 (by Viktor Kharyk and Konstantin Golovchenko). This is a 14-style revival and further development of the typeface 1812 by Lehmann Type Foundry (St. Petersburg). It was created for the centenary of the French invasion of Russia, known in Russia as the Patriotic War of 1812 along the lines of decorative engraved inscriptions and ornamented typefaces of that time, presumably by the artist Alexandre Benois. It was used mainly for the decoration of luxurious elegant publications. Later, in 1917, this typeface was used on the Russian Provisional Government banknotes. In the Soviet period of time '1812' appeared to be one of the few typefaces included in the first Soviet type standard OST 1337. It was produced for manual typesetting until the early 1990s. This typeface could be seen on Soviet letterheads, forms, posters and even air tickets. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Graphicriver link.

Now, alert typophiles have pointed out that most---if not all---of Gorohovskiy's fonts are renamed and plainly stolen fonts. I leave the images on my site for the historical record. Here is a list of equivalences, as reported by this Italian blog:

  • Bebas Neue (Adderley)
  • Canter Bold (Alabama)
  • Chivo (Arthur)
  • Dense (Aroma)
  • Gotham with unofficial (pirated corporate) Cyrillic part (Arson Pro)
  • Josefin Sans (Arsenal Sans)
  • Josefin Slab (Arsenal Slab)
  • Long Tall Sally EEN Plain (Emerald)
  • Source Sans (Equilibrium)
  • TT Chocolates (Arnold)
  • Uniform Black by Miller Type Foundry (Tilt)
  • Vidaloka (Arcanzas)
  • Vollkorn (Martin)
As a result, Gorohovskiy's Creative Market account has been suspended. But why did Creative Market let this matter go on for a full two years? Incompetent editors? As a matter of fact, another distributor, Graphicriver, still has not removed his account as of late February 2018. His sales there amount to about 900 dollars, so this is plain theft. But then again, is this very different from Book Antiqua (Monotype's copy of Palatino) and Fotura (Linotype's not-so-subtle copy of Futura)? [Google] [More]  ⦿

Iakov Georgievich Chernikhov

A Russian architect and artist, Iakov Chernikhov was born in 1889 in Pavlograd, Yekaterinenskav Gubernia, Ukraine (now Dnepropetrovskay Oblast). He died in 1951 in Moscow. He studied at the Odessa Art School, a branch of the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts. In 1914, having graduated from the Art School, he moved to St. Petersburg and entered the Academy of Arts. In 1916 Chernikhov transferred from the painting faculty to the architecture department and graduated in 1925. He became a successful architect, and taught at the Leningrad Institute of Transportation Engineers (after 1933 LIIZhT) in the school of architecture (1928-45), at the Industrial Academy (NKTP) in the course for factory and plant construction (1930-32), at the Stalin Transportation Academy (NKPC) (1930-32), and at the Institute of Engineers of Water Transportation (1929-31). He published Fundamentals of Modern Architecture (1929-1930), Construction of Architectural and Machine Forms (1931), and Architectural Fantasies. 101 Compositions (1933). These classics are all about architectural fantasies. The last work of Iakov Chernikhov, which remained uncompleted, was the book An Analysis of the Construction of Classical Typeface (written in 1945-1951). It was published in 1958, seven years after his death. Iakov Chernikhov used for construction of the types some principles taken from the theory of architectural forms having much in common with the type forms that obey the same regularities. Some of his work looks like the early attempts at regularization by Duerer and Tory, or as found in the Romain du Roi.

In 2009, Dmitry Yakovlevich Chernikhov (editor), Uta Keil (German translation) and Heike Maria Johennig (English translation) published the Russian / German / English text Graphic masterpieces of Yakov Georgievich Chernikhov : the collecton of Dmitry Yakovlevich Chernikhov (DOM Publishers, Berlin).

Kazimir Severinovich Malevich

A pioneer of geometric abstract art and the originator of the avant-garde suprematist movement, Kazimir Severinovich Malevich was born in 1879 in Kiev, and died in 1935 in Leningrad. In 1915, Malevich laid down the foundations of Suprematism when he published his manifesto From Cubism to Suprematism. After the October Revolution (1917), Malevich became a member of the Collegium on the Arts of Narkompros, the Commission for the Protection of Monuments and the Museums Commission (from 1918 until 1919). He taught at the Vitebsk Practical Art School in Belarus (1919-1922), the Leningrad Academy of Arts (1922-1927), the Kiev State Art Institute (1927-1929), and the House of the Arts in Leningrad (1930). He wrote The World as Non-Objectivity, which was published in Munich in 1926 and translated into English in 1959. In it he outlines his Suprematist theories.

Typefaces based on his work include:

  • Malevich (2010, Artem Moiseev).
  • NCD Black Square family (2008, by Nippa Downy). Downey writes: The Black Square of Kazimir Malevich is one of the most famous creations of Russian art in the last century. The first Black Square was painted in 1915 to become the turning point in the development of Russian avant-garde..

[Yevgeniy Anfalov]

Born in Kyiv, Ukraine, in 1986, Yevgeniy Anfalov moved to Germany in 2003. He studied Visual Communication at Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts, and he launched his own design practice in 2010, two years before graduation. From 2015 to 2017, he completed the MA Art Direction at ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne, with a major in Type Design. He obtained an award of excellence for his graduation book project on the history of electronic music, ROTARY. Geschichte des Studios für elektronische Musik WDR Köln 1951-1981. Yevgeniy is working primarily in the fields of editorial design, visual identities, bespoke typefaces and online projects.

Founder of Kyiv Type Foundry, which aims to offer new perspectives on Cyrillic type design.

His typefaces:

  • LL Heymland (2018-2020, Lineto). An all caps flared typeface for Latin and Cyrillic that was influenced by a pen drawing of Koch's Koch Antiqua found in Solomon Telingater's estate.
  • The cyrillization of Stephan Müller's Chernobyl, a graphic stencil font designed in the late 1990s.
  • The custom typeface Malba Sans (2017) for Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (MALBA). He explains: Malba Sans is a corporate font of the museum, whose capital letters were drawn in-house (Aldus De Losa) and served the titling purposes. We were asked by the museum's graphic design team to analyse and update the capital letters, draw the lowercase letters, based upon the improved model and extend the character sets to cover more languages. The new version, named Malba Sans is characterised by a stronger vertical accent and more consistency due the reshape of all the letter forms. A new tighter spacing contributed to the better titling function. Malba Sans was fully kerned and is going to be implemented in the museum's upcoming identity in 2018. The font was exclusively drawn for the internal use and is not available for licensing.

Speaker at ATypI 2012 in Hong Kong: Evaluating fonts legibility in automotive environment. Excerpts of the abstract: Can typeface design make a difference in minimizing glance times [in vehicles] while maximizing the time that drivers' eyes stay on the road? Monotype Imaging has partnered with the MIT AgeLab to study the impact of typeface design on driver demand. He goes on: Data from two separate experiments, each involving over 40 participants ranging from 36 to 74 years of age was collected in a real-time driving simulation in which participants were asked to respond to a series of address, restaurant identification and content search menus that were implemented using two different typeface designs. The results were collected and analyzed using eye tracking equipment and video recordings. Among participants, a Square Grotesque typeface resulted in a noticeable increase in visual demand as compared to the Humanist typeface. Total glance time and number of glances required to complete a response showed consistent results. He also spoke at ATypI 2015 in Sao Paulo. [Google] [More]  ⦿
