Ramakrishna Saiteja

Ramakrishna Saiteja studied Graphic Design at DJ Academy of Design in Coimbatore, India. That led to an internship at Itu Chaudhuri Design in New Delhi. While there, his interest in designing typefaces grew, prompting him to do his final project with Indian Type Foundry (ITF). While at ITF, Ramakrishna designed a few Indic scripts, including Coorg Kannada, Coorg Kannada Sans, and a Latin type design. In collaboration with ITF colleagues Jonny Pinhorn and Nikhil Ranganathan, he worked on the Telugu and Kannada extensions for the ITF typeface Akhand.

Presently, Ramakrishna is working independently on another Classic Kannada type design and plans to pursue an MA in Visual Arts (Graphic Design and Visual Communication) at Academy of Arts, Architecture & Design in Prague. When he is not designing type, he loves riding bikes and often goes on rides with friends to get away from the noise of the city.
