Pablo Impallari is a self taught type designer, still learning through books, blogs, forums & detailed observation, with the help of friend and colleagues. He thinks that typefaces are living beings, they always continue to evolve over time. Even if the original designer died over 500 years ago, contemporary designers push their ideas forward, adapting to changing technology and keeping up with the always shifting way we perceive the alphabet. Pablo continues to actively design and release his own typefaces and help other designers learn and publish new fonts.
Alexei Vanyashin is a Russian typeface designer, typographic researcher and educator. He was born in Moscow, Russia in 1982, studied Graphic Design since 2000 at Moscow Stroganov University of Arts, and later type design at British Higher School of Art and Design, where he now teaches. He runs his own foundry Cyreal, and collaborates with Swiss Typefaces as a Cyrillic specialist. Among his many custom type projects are works for Red Dot holder Ermolaev Bureau, GEO, and Afisha magazines. LearnCyrillic.tumblr.com is Alexei’s recent effort to provide educational resources for Cyrillic learners.
