In 2011 Andrij’s typeface became a winner of Ukrainian Type Design Competition ‘Mystetsky Arsenal’ in which three main criteria were sought for: being zeitgeist, practical, and Ukrainian. Andrij’s winning entry was crowned Arsenal and made publicly available.

Its special qualities of letter shapes and subtle contrast modulation articulate grace and expressivity. Arsenal’s somewhat lyrical sentiment abides to the Ukrainian nature of the font.
