Parvana is our new custom OpenType typeface designed specifically for the Oscar nominated Cartoon Saloon feature length animation, The Breadwinner. Designed in collaboration with type designer Bobby Tannam, we created the logotype originally from an existing font, giving it a slightly Arabic slant to suit the Afghan landscape in which the film is set. We then worked with Bobby in developing the full typeface including an extensive character set to support, English, Irish, Danish, French and German versions of the film.
