Jakub Samek's typeface

Briefcase autori BLOG Samek 01
1/Reformulate specimen I.: Jakub Samek displays a good sense of balance between the traditional and the calculated, between the banal and the thought-out. For him, the optical impression and aspiration for perfect legibility are more important than perfect consistency of individual characters, taking a free, but educated approach.
2/Ernesto Neto: The Reformulate typeface used in the poster for the exhibition “Blue Mist Gray Girls” – in Memoriam Miroslav Tichý in GASK (2011). Reformulate proves that even a non-proportional font, created using a very simple principle of shadowing, need not appear cold, drab and artificial.
