Let’s create #together

PlovdivTypeface is the first typeface dedicated to the city of Plovdiv; it is based on the handwriting of its citizens and friends, and is free for download. Its creation marks the celebration of Plovdiv as the first European Capital of Culture 2019 that officially uses the Cyrillic script. The entire creation process was inspired by the specific character of the city – multidimensional, multicultural, yet tolerant and unified.

Plovdiv Script

Plovdiv Script is a font developed after analysing more than 3,800 handwriting samples collected from people who live in Plovdiv. The typeface is diverse, warm and cheerful just like all of them. It works well at both small and large sizes, which makes it suitable for numerous design needs such as branding, packaging, website design and advertising.

Plovdiv Display

Plovdiv Display comes in three weights – Light, Regular and Bold. It represents the multi-layered character of Plovdiv. Its tone is elegant and well-proportioned, while its graphics are bold and balanced. It is recommended for various typographic compositions, memorable titles and short to medium-sized texts. It can be applied both to print and online media.

Plovdiv Sans

The most utilitarian member of the Plovdiv type family, Plovdiv Sans still maintains its close connection with both Plovdiv Script and Plovdiv Display. Its mission is to have a broad application, for all your personal and commercial projects.
