Pathum Egodawatta


I am a Graphic Designer and Type Designer based in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

I always loved letters and everything about them. I’ve been collecting and sampling Sinhala typography for the last few years, during and after my degree studies in Graphic Design at the Academy of Design, Colombo with Northumbria University. I topped the batch 🙂

With my final year design project I found I loved designing type more than I ever knew. After completing the degree I worked at McCann Worldwide in Colombo as an Art Director. I’m currently working with Dave Crossland on libre fonts projects.

When not designing type, I’m thinking about how free content and libre graphics software can help the developing world, and work with Mooniak.
