Yevgeniy Anfalov is a designer based in Kyiv and Hannover. Born in Kyiv (Ukraine) in 1986, Yevgeniy Anfalov moved to Germany in 2003. He studied Visual Communication at Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts, and he launched his design practice in 2010. From 2015 to 2017, he completed the MA Art Direction at ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne, with a major in Type Design under François Rappo and Kai Bernau. He obtained an award of excellence for his graduation book project on the history of electronic music, ROTARY. Geschichte des Studios für elektronische Musik WDR Köln 1951–81.

His practice as a type designer grew out of his activities in the fields of visual design alongside research in design history, editing and photography. His first published font is LL Heymland, released on Lineto in 2020. In 2021 he set up Kyiv Type Foundry, which aims to offer new perspectives on the Ukrainian heritage of type design.
