Introduction

Displaay is an independent type foundry established by Martin Vácha in 2016 and based in Prague, Czech Republic. Our team has numerous collaborators around the world. The foundry focuses on retail and custom typefaces. The aim is to develop distinctive typefaces that are missing on the market. Specific moments of imperfection and spontaneous irregularities inspire our ethos.

Martin Vácha has focused on type design continually since 2008. His experience began during his time at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague where he studied at both the Graphic Design and Type Design studios.

Daniel Quisek gained knowledge in type design during his master studies in the Netherlands. At the studio, he focuses on developing custom typefaces.

All typefaces are available exclusively through this website. This allows us to provide optimum customer service, gives us control over licensing and the option to supply updates if necessary.
