Noah is not just another geometric sans but rather extending the limits of the x-height for a further flexibility of a typeface. This type family encompasses 72 fonts grouped into four subfamilies with different x-heights — starting from the lowest one Noah Grotesque through Noah and Noah Text to the highest one Noah Head — all they including styles from Thin to Black with matching true italics.
The geometric structure combined with normal width proportions, moderate contrast and vertical stress make this type family suitable for various typographic usages whereas the enhanced legibility of Noah Text optimizes it perfectly for long texts, and Noah Head intended for strong headlines. Sharp details, terminals with humanistic flavor and typographic alternates of letters, such as the binocular “g” or the geometric “a” successfully blend the best aspects of both geometric and grotesque typeface classics.
The underlying flawless functionality show coverage of Extended Latin and Cyrillic with span for more than 130 languages; support of many OpenType features, such as localizations, tabular numerals, inferiors and superiors, numerators and denominators, fractions, standard and discretionary ligatures, case sensitivity etc. The versatile characteristics of Noah type family are solution for every design challenge.

Fontfabric is the foundry of Svetoslav Simov, a visual designer who is located in Sofia, Bulgaria, b. 1984. Highly innovative designer whose creations have lots of style and flair. Many fonts are for both Latin and Cyrillic.
Based in Sofia, Bulgaria, Radomir Tinkov began his career as a graphic and web designer. “Typography is an essential part of almost every aspect of life and design in particular,” he says, “so it got me curious and little by little I started to create fonts on the side.” His earliest designs were limited to mainly display faces, but he knew that he wanted to create a deeper type library filled with more versatile and useful designs. “As time passed, I learned more and more and began to create custom typefaces to solve real problems in other design projects I was working on and just like that, my first marketable font was created.”
Type designer at Fontfabric in Sofia, Bulgaria. He was part of the Fontfabric team that designed the 521-font family Zing Rust, Zing Sans Rust and Zing Script Rust in 2017. In 2018, he published the free all caps lapidary typeface Colus at Fontfabric. In 2019, Svet Simov, Radomir Tinkov and Stan Partalev designed the 72-strong Noah family of geometric sans typefaces, which is partitioned into four groups by x-height from small (Noah Grotesque) to medium (Noah and Noah Text) to large (Noah Head).
