ABOUT







Borys Kosmynka

Freelance graphic and type designer in Lodz, Poland. He cooperates with the Book Art Museum (which stores the legacy of Polish typography) to revive the spirit of letterpress printing and digitize old type. Speaker at ATypI 2017 in Montreal.

In 2018, Mateusz Machalski, Borys Kosmynka and Przemek Hoffer co-designed the six-style antiqua typeface family Brygada 1918, which is based on a font designed by Adam Poltawski in 1918. Free download from the Polish president's site. The digitization was made possible after Janusz Tryzno acquired the fonts from Poltawski's estate. The official presentation of the font took place in the Polish Presidential Palace, in presence of the (right wing, ultra-conservative, nationalist, law and order) President of Poland, Andrzej Duda. Calling it a national typeface, the president assured the designers that he would use Brygada 1918 in his office. It will be used for diplomas and various other official forms.

Graduate of the MATD program at the University of Reading, class of 2019. His graduation typeface, Pactio, is a multi-script typeface family, intended for printing long text passages. It was created with small to medium size printing in mind. The Pactio family consists of six weights each for Latin, Cyrillic, and Arabic.
