Svet Simov was born 1984 in Novi Pazar, Bulgaria. In 2004 he moved to the capital, Sofia, to study Industrial Design in the Engineering & Technology University. Two years later he started working as a graphic designer in advertising agencies, mainly developing corporate logos and vector images (icons, symbols and others).
At the end of 2008 he founded Fontfabric, working on his first fonts which are mostly free for download, allowing both personal and commercial use. His first bestseller was Uni Sans and is implemented in seven weights and their corresponding italics. Some of his other most popular fonts by date are Intro, Nexa and Nexa Slab, and Code.
The Fontfabric portfolio currently presents over 40 fonts, including bestsellers and designers' favourites. Svet's work has been featured in online and printed design editions and respected exhibitions for creatives.
