Redesign of Deepika Daily.
The story behind e Mangalam's exclusive headline typeface.
Eight exclusive Malayalam typefaces designed for Malayala Manorama define their typography for years to come.
Meet Indulekha, Ravivarma and Ambili who had given Malayalam typography a new lease of life.
Mathrubhumi's typefaces given a contemporary flavour.

We had designed a headline typeface for Deepika daily (the oldest in Malayalam) when we undertok the redesign of the daily. Deepika (nee Atham) is a robust typeface with condensed form loosely inspired by Frankin Gothic. A Normal and Bold version with Oblique make a strong family. The typeface is still the main display typeface for the group's publications even after so many years.
We consider it among one of our best type designs to date.
We also licensed Orma on a non-exclusive basis to them during the project.
