Jakub Spurný

Jakub Spurný (1988) studied at the Typography Studio at the Academy of Arts Architecture and Design in Prague. In 2017 he graduated with his author’s gamebook VIRUS. It was the second time one of Spurný’s books was selected for the Most Beautiful Czech Books of the Year; it also won the Best In Design contest and was chosen for the Graduation Projects selection. The zigzagged and cipher-woven path led from trash typography (Senohraby) through a polished evolutionary Bodoni (Ghitta Bodoni) to experiments in frequency analysis, OpenType functions and the labyrinths of typefaces. He recently became a member of Studio Najbrt and is preparing a new batch of his psychotropic beer.
