Laic is the type foundry founded in 2018 by Warsaw, Poland-based type designer Maciej Polczynski. His typefaces:
- As part of his Bachelor's project at the Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technologies in 2016, Maciej Polczynski (Warsaw, Poland) designed the sans typeface Ayka.
- In 2016, as part of Warsaw Types, he designed the vintage technical typeface Cyrulik and writes: Cyrulik is inspired by technical stencil lettering found on electrical and mechanical devices in Warsaw, and a prewar headline display font---Cyklop---used in a newspaper called Cyrulik Warszawski. The font design combines a strong and sturdy form with delicate and modern details, reflecting the contemporary character of Warsaw. Cyrulik comies in Rounded, Sharp and Stencil styles and is free.
