Say hello to Zoho Puvi—our down-to-earth typeface

We're excited to share that we now have a font of our own!

On the mission to redefining our visual identity, we created Puvi: a typeface that is functional, scalable, dynamic, and speaks to our company philosophy. We strive to create useful, intuitive and beautiful software, and we think this typeface will feel right at home.

Zoho Puvi

Puvi stands tall with an increased x-height for better legibility, a stylized angular cut, and a designed stress on high contrast for overall aesthetic appearance. We've designed the font to be transmutable across different formats and environments. You'll be seeing Puvi sitting comfortably within a pop-up box, inside our product, or maxed-out on a billboard that scales an entire building!

Wondering why we named it Puvi and call it "down-to-earth"? Read our story

Farming at Zoho

Our farm offices are finally "bearing fruit" (or vegetables, as the case may be), and we couldn't be happier.

Back story: In February of this year, a few of us got together and opened up a farm at our Austin campus. We hauled in some organic manure and started to cultivate.

Farming at Zoho

A few months later, our farm produced over 30 varieties of crops. From basil, mint, and lavender to apples, peaches, and melons—you name it, and we probably grew it! We started this project before COVID19 became widespread, and once social distancing kicked in, our farm became a place for (socially distanced) colleagues to reconnect.

Raju Vegesna's Quote

We've also opened six new rural offices in India, each based in a village. We have already started our local hiring and training initiatives, and are starting to see great results.

Diginomica captured our philosophy on farming (and some of our other guiding values) beautifully. We highly recommend reading it!
