The present typographic catalog Tipo2 is a continuation of the project, which was launched in the academic year 2008/09. Students of undergraduate programs Graphic and interactive communications and Graphic and media technologies in it represent typographic creations – typefaces – started with subjects Typography in Various Media and Typographical Planning and completion in the subject Typeface Design.
The guideline of the project task for the design of the typefacese was that it must be legible, so it is useful at least for putting a shorter text. The type represented in the catalog is the result of two semesters. During this time, students in addition to the typeface specimen tested the efficiency of their letter types using the poster for a international cultural event, and then they were transferred to a moving, interactive medium.
Creating a successful typeface is a long process in which it is often necessary to return to its beginning and perhaps reconsider the cues, make other decisions. How many examinations, how successful were the reflections, and how good were they – in addition to individual design motivations – planning decisions, all this is trying to get through the current collection of typeaces to the readers and enthusiastic typographers.
