Hi Can anyone help me with a few questions. - Do you know of any Indian Designers - Do you know of any Indian Design Companies Thanks Jim ===
Jim, Please specify Native Indian or East Indian? gln
The only "Eastern Indian" type designer I know is R K Joshi, but he's massively significant. I don't know of any Amerind type designers. hhp
Hi I meant East Indian. I have heard of RK Roshi, but all the web links I've found to him (mainly on Luc's site) are out of date. Do you know of any active links to his work? Thanks JIM ===
I have a very good friend that is from India and is a graphic designer. He lives in Wisconsin.
> Do you know of any active links to his work? Let me try to get more knowledgable people over here. hhp
i was searching for some indic fonts a couple months back and found C-DAC has some really beautiful fonts. If yer familiar with Luc's pages, he has a link on his Indic page to their typography website. unfortunately, i didn't find any designer information in conjunction with their excellent faces. but they're worth looking at!
Due to the nature of Indic fonts you'll find most of the the current designers over at http://groups.msn.com/MicrosoftVOLTuserscommunity Cheers, Si
me!? just kidding
Jim, I can send you Joshi's email if it would help. Are you interested in Indian designers, or designers of fonts in Indic scripts? Fiona
Hi Fiona Both Indian desigenrs and Indic fonts. The reason is building letters ( http://www.buildingletters.org ) I am researching the next issue which may focus on India. Jim
Oh and Joshi's email would be very, very helpful, thanks (my email address is jim at unionfonts.com). I see your new to the board, and a fellow Brit, what's your interest in type? Jim ===
