Mixa

Mixa

{"autoplay":"true","autoplay_speed":3000,"speed":300,"arrows":"true","dots":"true"}

Neo-grotesque Sans Serif mixed with the classical handwritten Script in slanted geometric shapes – that’s the way Mixa was born. Those two faces of the new font family make it as much as unique and recognizable. When you’re using the Capitals only nobody will suspect that there is script hidden in the lowercase. That’s why all eight weights can be combined perfectly with wide list of classical Sans Serif, Slab Serif and Serif typefaces. The font offers wide range of ligatures to ensure smooth readability and beautiful letter combinations. The decorative swashes in some of the Capitals presented as a stylistic sets give unique touch in any design. Mixa has it’s own style and personality, but without lacking of legibility.

Milka Peikova

Milka Peikova (b. 1919, Pavel, Bulgaria, d. 2016, Sofia, Bulgaria) was a famous Bulgarian artist. She created paintings, posters, book covers, portraits of famous Bulgarians, textile designs and alphabets, both individually and together with her husband Georgi Kovachev-Grishata (1920-2012). She is a graduate of the Bulgarian National Art Academy, class of 1948. She founded Cosmos magazine and designed for the Women Today and Problems of Art magazines.
In 1979, she designed an alphabet that was extended to an 8-style Latin / Greek / Cyrillic stencil typeface—Milka (2016)—by a team of designers at Lettersoup that includes Ani Petrova, Botio Nikoltchev, Adam Twardoch and Andreas Eigendorf. The basic Milka font is a clean stencil design, while the Aged, Baked, Brittle, Crunchy, Dry and Soft styles are inspired by stencil and letterpress techniques and expand the usefulness by adding various degrees of warmth or roughness.
Milka Peikova also designed the first Bulgarian typeface for phototypesetting called Grilimil with her husband Georgi Kovachev-Grishata. She is the recipient of the first prize for a typeface at the Bulgarian National Book Exhibition and Illustration.

Description

Milka is an 8-style stencil font family created by a team of designers born within the span of almost 70 years. It is a digital expansion on an alphabet designed in 1979 by the famous Bulgarian artist Milka Peikova.

The basic Milka font is a clean stencil design, while the Aged, Baked, Brittle, Crunchy, Dry and Soft styles are inspired by stencil and letterpress techniques and expand the usefulness by adding various degrees of warmth or roughness. The Milka font family has extensive Latin, Cyrillic and Greek character set support including localized forms for Russian and Bulgarian as well as numerous OpenType features.

Since 2014, Berlin-based Bulgarian type designer Botio Nikoltchev has been working with three Bulgarian female designers (the original designer Milka Peikova, who passed away in 2016 at the age of 96, and with Ani Petrova and Anelia Pashova, both from a young generation), as well as with Berlin-based Adam Twardoch and Andreas Eigendorf to create a modern revival of Ms Peikova’s inspiring stencil alphabet. Milka Peikova (1919-2016) was one of Bulgaria’s most famous female artists whose work has influenced several generations of Bulgarian designers. During her impressive career spanning almost seven decades, she created paintings, posters, book covers, textile designs and alphabets, both individually and together with her husband Georgi Kovachev-Grishata (1920–2012).
