I'm type and graphic designer based in Croatia. I design fonts and lettering for various clients and purposes ☞ and that can be you. This portfolio is a quick overview of my work, for more details please get in touch.



Zico Slab

  • Type design

Sturdy type family with wider proportions, including broad range of styles that perform equally well in sizes big and small. It preserves dynamics without any particular influence of writing tools. Instead, it’s using contrast as a manipulated variable rather than fixed one. Seven weights from Thin to Black, plus a Display weight. Contact for more information and availability.

 

Designed in 2015 as part of TypeMedia master course.

Garestin Type System

  • Type design

Garestin Type System is intended to serve as a carrier of visual identity of city of Varaždin. Therefore, its styles should perform well in all possible sizes from small continuous text to large ones such as storefronts or wayfinding system. System consists of three ‘optical’ styles: Small, Medium and Large with accompanying italics whose names indicate intended application size. Details are crafted specifically for each style, while Large style sports higher contrast than Small and Medium.

 

City of Varaždin is famous for its baroque architecture, which was main inspiration for the typeface. Garestin Type System is at the same time inspired by architecture details and proportions in the city and transitional typefaces from baroque period. Result is an elegant contemporary serif type system suited for text and display use, with enough character to carry identity of a city.

 

Developed as final MA project @ School of Design, Zagreb

Kos

  • Lettering

Wordmark for small agrotourism startup ‘Kos’ based near Zabok, Croatia. Everything they offer is hand-made from juices, wines, food etc., so I was searching for something between natural, organic, crafty that would easily be applied into various type of material (wood, metal). Final wordmark is soft-stenciled brush script with simple swashes.

Marina

  • Lettering

Marina is a boat hostel based in Rijeka, Croatia. Client had exact idea in mind sketched with existing font, but wanted custom tailored logotype. Main challenge was to find the best option for RI ligature (RI is also abbreviation for Rijeka) that would be noticable but still not standing out too much.

CaoCao

  • Lettering

Logotype redesign for CaoCao chocolate. Client wanted to refresh their logo, but didn’t want to go for something totally different. New, more simple script logotype, incorporates characteristic capital C and a bit funky contrast from existing packaging. It is actually one word that can be repeated in a row for the needs of advertising campaign. Two different versions of letter ‘o’, with and without final form.

Designing visual identity for restaurant Okrugljak’s 100 year anniversary.

Following the broad nib contrast type of the logo, number 100 was added for restaurant’s birthday promotion materials.

Miłosz

  • Type design

Typeface Miłosz was designed by Andrija Mudnić, Luka Reicher and Marko Hrastovec for Type Design International Competition ‘Miłosz 2011’ organized by Znaczy Się New Art Foundation. As the brief stated, the typface was to be used for publishing Czesław Miłosz’s work (both prose and poetry) in Polish and English language.

 

By analyzing Miłosz’s work, conclusion was brought that his poetry is rich with symbolic metaphors and that ‘atmosphere’ in his poems can change drastically from one verse to the other. Our focus was on functionality and legibility as the typeface was intended for use in continuous text aswell as poetry. Special attention was given to shaping Polish diacritics, adjusting proportions of letters based on their frequency of use and designing a variety of ligatures that would solve type setting problems common to Polish and other European languages.
