dsc02536.jpg

Departamentul Type Design and Typography (VSUP) din cadrul Academiei de Arta, Arhitectura si Design din Praga, este una dintre cele mai bune scoli de graphic design din Republica Ceha.
Aceasta expozitie aduce la UNAgaleria lucrari din ultimii ani ale studentilor acestui departament. Toate lucrarile sunt de fapt teme de semestru sau de examen. Intreaga colectie poate fi impartita in cateva tipuri de graphic design: design de litera (in cea mai mare parte fiind vorba de alfabeturi originale), proiecte culturale si sociale, design propriu-zis si carti realizate integral de studenti.


Profesorii de la VSUP isi incurajeaza studentii sa-si creeze propriile lor proiecte, complet independent de inclinatiile mentorului. “Cel ce termina facultatea noastra este un tanar independent, cu o gandire critica si o atitudine matura, ce se poate exprima din punct de vedere grafic intr-o maniera unica.”

Frantisek Storm
Nascut in 1966 la Praga, Frantisek Storm a urmat departamentul Type Design and Typography din cadrul Academiei de Arta, Arhitectura si Design din Praga, acelasi departament la care acum preda.
In 1993 a infiintat Storm Type Foundry prin care isi prezinta si vinde fonturile create, iar astazi este designer de fonturi, fotograf, xilograf, si programator. In 2000, font-ul sau Biblon, a primit premiul de excelenta in tipografie acordat de Clubul Designerilor de Font-uri din New York.
 “Nu este o exagerare sa afirmam ca Storm este un fel de punte intre tipografia trecutului si cea high-tech. El preia fonturi clasice si le transforma in fonturi CE pentru calculator, ce prezinta toate accentele si diacriticele limbilor central-europene, de la ceha la ungara.
<< Tehnologia a facut mult rau literei>> spune Storm << A indreptat liniile si le-a racit. Cand erau facute din metal, liniile erau mai curbate asemeni naturii, si deci, erau mai umane>>
Parte a misiunii lui Storm este sa corecteze aceste greseli. De multe ori cauta in trecut versiunile originale ale unor litere, ca un vanator de comori, si dupa ce le gaseste, le renaste intr-o forma digitala.” 

 

ENGLISH VERSION 
Graphic design from VSUP

The common international model of a graphic design studio today resembles a community of a few older and many younger colleagues from around the world, who share certain experience and who have much to talk about.
The Type Design and Typography Studio (VSUP) at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague is one of the best graphic design schools in the Czech Republic.
This exhibition presents works done by the students of the studio Type Design and Typography during the last two years. All works presented are semester and exam tasks. The collection shows several types of graphic design: type design (mostly original alphabets and their applications), cultural and social projects, freelanced design and original books.
The professors at VSUP encourage their students to express and develop their own graphic language, completely independent of their mentor’s attitude. “Our graduate is an independent, critically thinking, adult person with his/her own unique graphic expression. S/He is able to handle commissions professionally, and s/he also pursues original free work.”
Frantisek Storm
Frantisek Storm was born in 1966 in Prague, graduated in 1991 from the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague where he studied book and type design, and was an assistant at the same department until 1995.
In 1993 he founded the Storm Type Foundry, and today is a freelance type-designer, photographer, xylographer and howling computer programmer.
In 2000 Storm’s Biblon type earned the “Excellence in Typography Award” from the Type Designers Club, New York.
“It is no exaggeration to say that Storm is a bridge — most obviously, between the typographic past and the high-tech future. He takes classic typefaces, or fonts, and turns them into computerized Central European (CE) typefaces, complete with all the necessary accents and diacritical markings for languages ranging from Czech to Hungarian.

Part of Storm’s mission is to rectify those problems. A true artisan, he often goes back to the original versions of type, hunting them down from obscure sources and resurrecting them digitally.” (Evan Rail)
