Laïc: Type — Maciej Połczyński — Warsaw, Poland

“One of our recently published typefaces is Hybryda (Hybrid in Polish), so called because it has two different types of components (shapes) performing essentially the same function. My idea was to combine sans serif with slab serif — linking them by high contrast and proving that you can create a coherent system with two opposing ideas if they are given something in common. It is a combination of retro and contemporary feeling. The typeface is strictly display and I must admit that I’m looking forward to seeing its application on some branding or packaging projects. It was really fun to work on.”

Laïc: is an independent type foundry set up in 2018 and based in Warsaw, Poland. It aims to provide alternative, high-quality and affordable typefaces. Each one represents a unique character. “We focus on something in between form and function and finally to have fun and enjoy our designs,” says its founder, adding: “We are wide open for collaborations.”
