The corporate identity and website for a law firm vangard uses Skolar, the colour yellow, and black-white illustrations to great effect. The identity was designed by labor b studio, and won the iF communication design award and the DDC Award in 2014.
Popular resource for everything web, Smashing magazine has been redesigned by Elliot Jay Stocks, using Skolar by David Březina for the headlines and intros, and Proxima Nova by Mark Simonson for the text. Smashing magazine also uses Skolar for its conferences, books, and workshops – in print as well as on digital platforms.
An established series of books on Linguistics by the etymological department of The Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic were redesigned by Vít Boček and David Březina in 2010. Notably, an extended custom version of Skolar was developed in six weights in order to typeset the books efficiently.
The generous layouts count on the complexity of academic texts, great amount of footnotes, and readers who have the urge to make notes while reading. The cover plays with the idea of boustrophedon writing as a reference to antiquity, the age in which everything had been said already!
8 Faces magazine conceived a limited edition of eight A3 (297mm x 420mm) artwork prints. David Březina designed print #1 using his typeface Skolar. The poster is the logical next step from the promotional poster designed for TypeTogether. While the first poster is about a single typeface and its features, this poster is about typeface design in general. It describes the basics behind “proportions”, “structures”, “modulation”, and “rhythm” in type design.
