ABOUT







Petra Docekalova

Typefoundry in Prague, Czechia, est. 2014 by Petra Docekalova, b. 1991, Ostrava, Czechia. She studied at the UMPRUM Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague and is a member of editorial team of TYPO9010, a book about Czech digital typefaces created between 1990 and 2010. Her graduation project consisted of a book about Jaroslav Benda and his typefaces. In 2014, she was working as a type design intern at Suitcase and Briefcase Type Foundry.

Her first commercial typeface, Monolina (2014), is a contemporary monolinear script that is based on the contrast between classical (beautiful) calligraphy and quickly jotted manuscript (sketches). As all styles are based on the single stroke of a round nib pen, the letter is rounded.

She received the TDC Award of excellence 2017 for her diploma project dealing with Czechoslovak calligraphy and new hand lettering forms.
