Hello Everyone!

My name is Ján Filípek, and I am a typeface designer. Since 2009, I have run my own typeface design studio, DizajnDesign. I studied Visual Communication at the Academy of Fine Arts & Design in Bratislava and TypeMedia – MA in Type Design at the KABK (Royal Academy of Art in The Hague), Netherlands. Besides font production, I create logotypes and letterings for clients. I have been actively teaching intensive calligraphy workshops since 2014, though less frequently in the last few years.

Fonts / Typefaces

DizajnDesign is an independent type foundry and graphic design studio founded by Ján Filípek. It focuses on creating high-quality typefaces with a contemporary attitude, providing useful yet enjoyable options for graphic designers all over the world. Released type families explore various type design spaces, ranging from text to display typefaces, from handmade scripts to serious, readable fonts.

Letterings & Custom TYPE

I work closely with clients who need typography logos or letterings. Letterings (hand-drawn letter signs) and logotypes are usually made of letters newly designed for their purpose, or they can be based on existing fonts.

Another area is creating custom type (newly designed typefaces) and type services, such as adding diacritics to your font, adding a new character to your font (like the Euro sign), or fixing a non-working font.


Sign painting and calligraphy is other field I specialize in – handmade type with a human touch, natural irregularities, or brush strokes.

Intensive Calligraphy Workshops

I have been teaching intensive calligraphy workshops since 2014. They are suited for complete beginners as well as for calligraphers and graphic designers who want to understand calligraphy, the theory of writing, and the theory behind making letters.
