Get yourself prepared for new type design adventures. Join our 4-day workshop and develop an understanding of the basic structure and the logic behind the letterforms of the cyrillic script. The workshop will be a combination of lectures, independent work, group exercises and feedback sessions.



In recent years the demands for typefaces covering multiple world languages and scripts have been rising dramatically. To provide designers with an opportunity to explore these unfamiliar territories, we conceived of a series of type design workshops on a variety of world scripts.

This years workshop will be held between August 23 and 26 in Bern, Switzerland and lead by type designers Maria Doreuli and Krista Radoeva. The workshop will be conducted in English and will introduce the Cyrillic script which is used in over 50 languages including Bulgarian, Macedonian, Russian, Serbian, Ukrainian and many more.


Maria Doreuli is a type designer currently based in Moscow where she runs her own studio Contrast Foundry. Maria's projects have been honoured by many prestigious awards, including Granshan, Morisawa, the TDC Certificate of Excellence in Type Design.

Krista Radoeva is originally from Bulgaria, currently based in London where she works as a type designer at Fontsmith. She has given talks at renowned conferences such as ATypI, Serebro Nabora and TypeCon, and ran workshops in Bulgaria, UK and the US.

Together they run Cyrillicsly: a blog and consultancy with the aim to provide more information about the Cyrillic script.
