Timur Zima, co-curator of our tomorrow.type.today Instagram account, has been exploring the platform to find the most interesting letters for almost two years now, and a year ago he started sharing those links in our journal

Designers from Budapest Adam & Bendeguz don’t really know how anything else except type design can be interesting to anyone on the planet. But until it’s like that the Hungarian duo just creates stuff that is interesting for them without thinking about what others would find appealing.


Fabio Florez firmly believes in the philosophy of DIY culture in both publishing and music and recommends using a zine or a music demo as a medium to express something to the world. Following his own recommendations, he works for an independent publication STOIC Magazine, creates music and zines and spends his free time working for GRAND design agency.


After getting his bachelor degree, Australian Oliva Rawling decided to stay in Leipzig — to work and communicate with the local design community as well as to look for a way to turn his typefaces into full-value artistic statements.


Inspired by the 90’s graffiti culture and skateboarding, Jan Estrada-Osmycki started to make his own stuff around 11 y.o. and never stopped. Then he studied at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts and got a master degree in painting. Jan also does music. During the pandemic he learned Blender and After Effects and came to the conclusion that the best things are simple, and the aesthetic aspect of design is less important than how the work shapes the author’s and user’s lives.


Each new project for Marine Stephan is an opportunity for her to find a new visual language, and to question her own approach to graphic and type design. Her work mixes contemporary aesthetics and historical references, along with a love for effective design with refined yet meaningful details.


Anna Sukhova never works alone. Each of her projects, whether it’s an identity, a book, or scenography, is a collaboration. It might be with an artist, curator, small publishing house, or a theatre. The best projects don’t start with a clear technical task — they start with a long discussion on the concept with all the participants.


Designer Alexander Raffl set up his tents in Vienna, where he works on a broad variety of projects, from the development of holistic branding concepts to editorial projects for artists and NGOs and experimental typefaces. He most enjoys working with projects that manage to fuse functionality with aesthetics.


Viktor Pesotsky is no longer interested in doing type and typography, he enjoys designing complicated systems where type is just one of the elements. This is one reason why he is subscribed to all sorts of accounts, ranging from graphic and web designers to interior and even footwear designers.
