Speaker at ATypI 2013 in Amsterdam and at ATypI 2014 in Barcelona. In Amsterdam, he presented a system that weds Latin and Cyrillic scripts. The chronology of his typefaces:

  • 2002. He created the gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous stencil family Jan (T-26), the 4-weight screen font family Makro (T-26), the computer simulation font Bronika, and Escom (T-26).
  • 2003. At Stereo Typehaus, he published the Tribeca, Magasine, Soho and Novella families. At Garagefonts, he published the sans serif family Tera. New fonts being planned then included the serif family Albeka, the octagonal family Hetra, and the sans families Patagonia.
  • 2006. Porta (a 130-weight serif family, now available as DTL Porta: it is advertised as type for the tabloids), Typonine Stencil (or T9 Stencil, aka SeeMore), and Tribeca. At OurType, he published the serif type Amalia (2005-2006).
  • 2007-2008. Tempera Sans, Tempera Biblio, Tempera Rose, Typonine Sans (+Mono, +Hairline, +Condensed), Typonine Stencil, Tesla Dynamo (fat rounded), Sablona, Greta Display (Typotheque), Fedra Display (Typotheque), Brioni Text (Typotheque, a promising slab serif family, with a large number of glyphs), Marlene (book face). Marlene is accompanied by Marlene High, Marlene Stencil and Marlene Display.
  • 2009. Nota. A curvy and very readable sans.
  • 2010. The Plan Grotesque family (Typotheque; +Stencil, Condensed, Condensed Stencil, Italic).
  • 2011. Delvard (sans family).
  • 2012. Thema (2012) is a high-contrast display typeface with pointy serifs. With Marija Juza (Babushke Studio, Zagreb) Djurek co-designed Balkan, a Latin / Cyrillic sans / stencil type system that won an award at TDC 2012.
  • 2013: Nocturno (+Display, +Stencil). A play on contrasts. Lumin (for editorial work, including Sans, Sans Condensed and Display subfamilies: see Typotheque). DTL Porta (Text and Display, Dutch Type Library) and DTL Porta News.
  • 2014: Valter (Typotheque). A variable contrast Peignotian sans inspired by pointed-pen writing. Valter won an award in the TDC 2015 Type Design competition.
  • In 2016, Peter Bilak, Nikola Djurek and Hrvoje Zivcic published the Uni Grotesk typeface family at Typotheque. It is based on Grafotechna's 1951 typeface Universal Grotesk, which in turn is based on 1934 design by Vladimir Balthasar. Tremolo (Typotheque, 2015) won an award at TDC 2016.
  • In 2016, Nikola published Bara at Typotheque in three optical sizes, Text, Display and Grande. He writes: Bara is inspired by the carved, incised metal types of the Dutch Golden Age. It is not a historical revival, but a loose interpretation of a typeface found in "The steadfast tin soldier" by Joh. Enschedé en Zonen (Haarlem, published by Spectatorpers in 1992), hand-set by Bram de Does in so-called Schefferletter, also known as Enschedé English-bodied Roman No6. The origins of this historical typeface are unclear, probably dating to early 16th century.
  • Francis Gradient (2016, Typotheque): is a capital-only Sans-serif typeface with with high contrast of thick and thin strokes, ideal for creating strong headlines. Francis draws its inspiration from an early 20th century lettering style often seen in European advertising, but also from the rational geometry that lends a rhythm to the typeface in text. [...] The typeface dynamically increasing or decreasing character widths. These remarkable text patterns are possible because each Gradient style contains 2,690 glyphs that are selected automatically using OpenType's Contextual Alternates feature.
  • Gordian (2017, Typotheque). A monoline rounded sans family with irresistible charm. Followed in 218 by Gordian Knott and Gordian Kapitalen.
  • Th Plotter techno superfamily in these styles: Regular, Mono, Hand, Display, Wave, Stencil, Liner, Line Mono, Liner Mono Stencil, Liner Display, Liner Stencil, and Mono Stencil.
  • Diurnal and Diurnal Display.
  • The Brenner superfamily, which comes in Display, Sans, Script, Sans Condensed, Serif, Slab and Mono versions.
  • Murtaugh and Riggs (2020, Typotheque).
