Displaay® is an independent type foundry and design studio founded by Martin Vácha in 2016 and based in Prague, Czech Republic. The foundry is primarily focused on retail and custom typefaces. We have numerous collaborators around the world.
Displaay began in 2014 as Martin’s final project when he created the first five typeface sketches during his studies at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. Martin has focused on type design continually since 2008. His experience began during his first year of studies when he became excited about the idea of creating his own, unique typefaces for specific projects and he has continued with this obsession until now.
Martin had been a graphic designer for 8 years who had mainly focused on graphics, typography, type-design, art-direction, editorial, book and magazine design, logo and visual identity creation. He is open minded and admires simplicity, strong ideas and distinctive typography. You can follow him on LinkedIn.
All typefaces are available exclusively and directly through this website. This allows us to provide optimum customer service, licensing control and the option to supply updates if necessary.
Trial files contain fonts in a reduced version. This means you can sketch with latin upper & lower cases, numbers, basic punctuation and stylistic sets, 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. So not for any public showcase only for your internal tests. We recommend you to use the Lab trials with the Adobe Optical kerning option.
