Carolyn Puzzovio

Graphic Designer

Carolyn Puzzovio (b. 1954) is a practicing graphic designer whose abiding interest has been lettering and type design. She spent thirty-eight years working in design education, mainly at the Universities of Lincoln and Northampton, UK.  
In the late 1990s Carolyn’s interest in lettering evolved into a fascination for the Armenian ‘aybuben’. She has given talks on the Armenian alphabet at international conferences/events – and held a one-woman exhibition of design work at the Armenian National Gallery, Yerevan, in October 2005. She has made a number of visits to Armenia since to take part in various type-related activities. Carolyn’s articles on the subject of the Armenian alphabet and type are published in the 2009/10 issues of Baseline: nos. 57 & 58.
In 2007–8, Carolyn developed her OpenType revival typeface: Lagoon. This project was supported by a grant from the AHRC (Arts & Humanities Research Council, UK) and won a first prize in Granshan 2008. In June 2012, Carolyn Puzzovio was awarded a Gold Medal by the Minister of Culture of RA, Mrs. Hasmik Poghosyan, ‘for significant input on the creation, preservation and development of typefaces’. Carolyn has now begun to look into the Georgian alphabet and its development.
