Parachute wins 3 International Awards

29 Sep 2009

We are happy to announce that Parachute® received 3 awards from The International Type Design Competition “Modern Cyrillic 2009” which took place in Moscow and was held by ParaType with support by the Federal Agency for Press and Mass Communications of Russia. PF Centro Pro, last year's Gold winner of the European Design ED Awards 2008 for Original Typeface, was selected to be among the winners. Centro Pro is not just a type family, it is a type system. This is a very legible contemporary group of typefaces, which is ideal for a wide range of design works. PF Champion Script Pro, one of our top-ranking typefaces, was also selected. Ever since its first release it has been getting rave reviews. This is the most advanced and powerful calligraphic typeface ever made. Its contemporary appearance blends perfectly with its classic roots. Finally, one of our lesser known typefaces was also selected to receive an award. PF Goudy Initials and Ornaments, is a revival taken to a higher level. The craftmanship of these complicated initials as well as the endless creative coloring possibilities offered by the 6 additional styles which function as overlay layers, make this typeface an essential part of your type library. The 3 winning typefaces were created by Panos Vassiliou.
