Complete Parachute Font Collection / 136 MB
Parachute® started out in 1999 by Panos Vassiliou, a University of Toronto graduate, after he decided to turn his passion for design and typography into a profession. Since then, 12 designers have joined in to form a select group of open-minded, free-spirited individuals. Parachute® is based in Athens and apart from being the major font supplier to most publishing houses and advertising agencies in Greece, it has built a strong network of valuable relationships with international clients such as BBDO, McCann Erickson, Young&Rubicam, TBWA, MetaDesign, JWT, Sudler&Hennessey, Interbrand, Wieden+Kennedy. The year 2003 marked the beginning of a new era for Parachute® with the release of an award-winning catalog (PRINT European Design Annual 2004). Since then an emphasis was placed on multilingual support and opentype technology. Parachute® received 2 merit awards for PF Libera and PF Manic Attack (EBGE Awards 2002), again in 2004 received another merit award for the typeface 'Archive Pro' (EBGE Awards 2004) and most recently won a major international award for the typeface superfamilies 'Centro Pro' (European Design Awards 2008).
