display type family
in development

Veselica is part of visual identity of slovak state national dance (SĽUK). As starting point for this typeface served works of mythical slovak type designer Martin Benka, who was for a change influenced by slovak rural typography.

My intention was to create a display typeface that would be in the same fashion as the production of SĽUK – a contemporary interpretation of slovak
folk  traditions.

So instead of digitizing original Benka's design I made typeface that has some characteristics of Benka's typefaces: sharp, almost wood-cut character, odd skew stroke terminals, hexagonal counters, and construction of some uppercase characters.
