Martin Vácha is a graphic designer who mainly focuses on graphics, typography, type design, art-direction, editorials, book & magazine design, logo creation, visual identity and webdesign. He admires simplicity, strong ideas & heavy typography.
The Displaay Type Foundry started as a final MA project (June 2014). The first five font sketches were created whilst studying at UMPRUM in Prague. Martin Vácha has focused on font sketching continually since 2008. His experience began during his first year of studies for the project Terrain magazine for which he modified Helvetica Textbook. Like all designers he was excited about the idea to create unique fonts for specific projects, so he has continued with this obsession until now.
Trial files contain fonts in a reduced version. This means you can sketch with latin upper & lower cases, numbers, basic punctuation and stylistic sets, but no kerning and only selected glyphs are available (the complete set will come with the Retail version).
This option allows you to test the fonts on your computer and integrate them into your own designs for non-commercial use. I highly recommend you to use the trials with the Adobe Optical kerning option.
If you would like to purchase any font please refer to the PDF specimens for further details. Important legal notes regarding purchasing are placed on this site.
You can purchase any retail fonts via the Buy box at the bottom of the page. Desktop version is delivered in OTF format. Web version in WOFF, WOFF2 and EOT.
