Slanted in Prague: Heavyweight Digital Type Foundry

Author: Eva Lotta Landskron

When we took a look at the contemporary design scene in Prague in August 2018 we visited Filip Matějíček and Jan Horčík from Heavyweight Digital Type Foundry in their studio.

Heavyweight Digital Type Foundry is based in Prague and has been established by Filip Matějíček and Jan Horčík in 2013. Both used to study at Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague in the Studio of Typography led by Karel Haloun and Tomáš Brousil. Heavyweight designed five typefaces so far, their own website is going to be released.

Take a look at our new issue and the video platform to meet more creative people from Prague!
