ABOUT







Mitja Miklavčič

Slovenian designer who lives in Postojna. His typefaces:

  • He created Gf H2O Sans in 2005 font at Gigofonts. This is a humanist sans done with Matevz Medja.
  • Tisa is a slab-serif inspired text family that won an award at TDC2 2007. It has useful features such as ink traps and uiformized math symbol and number widths across all styles in the family. In fact, the Latin/Cyrillic type family Tisa was his project at the University of Reading, where he graduated in 2006. He wrote a nice essay on the history of Clarendon (2006). In 2008, he published Tisa as FF Tisa at FontFont. Tisa won a TDC award. In 2012, he added the superfamily FF Tisa Sans (FontFont).
  • Mitja worked full-time at Fontsmith and now continues to collaborate with the team on some type design projects. His Fontsmith cooperation led to FS Rufus (a slab serif done with Jason Smith and Emanuela Conidi), FS Me (a sans family designed for readers with a learning disability; co-designed with Emanuela Conidi, Fernando Mello, Jason Smith and Phil Garnham: FS Me was researched and developed in conjunction with - and endorsed by - Mencap, the UK's leading charity and voice for those with learning disability. Mencap receive a donation for each font licence purchased), FS Albert Pro, and FS Albert Pro Narrow. The latter two families were done with Jason Smith and Phil Garnham---they support Greek, Cyrillic, and Latin, covering 60 languages.
  • At House Industries, Jess Collins and Mitja Miklavic revived Ed Benguiat's great fat didone typeface Benguiat Montage in 2018.
