Font Sampler

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

Разъяренный чтец эгоистично бьёт пятью жердями шустрого фехтовальщика.

Огньове изгаряха с блуждаещи пламъци любовта човешка на Орфей.

Фијуче ветар у шибљу, леди пасаже и куће иза њих и гунђа у оџацима.

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.
Arsenal is a semi-grotesque with traditional forms. It is primarily designed for body text and intended for various professional communication. 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.
