in MASTER TYPE DESIGN

by Ondřej Báchor


Kolektiv is a high contrasted transitional serif typeface that comes in 8 cuts including Italics. Intended as a book typeface, it is suitable in small sizes where its smooth ductus creates an organic text structure, as well as for headline sizes where it excels in its elegant style of drawing. It’s a digital interpretation of a design by the same name drawn in 1952 by a collective of Czech authors. As a Czech designer, Kolektiv is my personal statement of what I consider Czech character in typography to be. The process of designing helped me to shape my own style and apply it to the typeface.
