plecnik typeface follows the principles of the numerous and diverse architecture and graphic design works from the most famous slovene architect jože plečnik, and so unfolds a piece of slovene’s rich, yet still undiscovered typographic legacy.
from the initial architectural plan to the final details on the building, plečnik planned his projects in a holistic and careful manner, paying attention to the inscriptions; which follow a unified concept and create a thoughtfully designed finished unit. inscriptions on monuments, book typesetting, book covers, architectural plan elements, ex-librises, additions in the form of ornaments, initials – these are also among plečnik’s prolific works, which had a strong influence on slovene typography. the newly created typeface represents a typographic legacy and contributes to the development of slovene typography as a distinctive visual representation of the slovene language.
is an independent type design studio based in ljubljana, slovenia, founded by alja herlah
and krista likar
