Jovica Veljović, Hamburg
Jovica Veljović is well known for his typeface designs and his masterful calligraphy. It is less well known that Veljović is also passsionate about handsomely printed antique books. His Agmena typeface pays homage to this passion. "Though many of my typefaces are used to set books and publications," he says, "none of them were designed specifically for this purpose." Veljović originally drew what was to become Agmena as part of several book design commissions dating back to 2000.
"I was able to see how the typeface performed when printed in various publications," Veljović recalls. "After each project, I carefully studied the results and made subtle – and sometimes not so subtle – changes to the design." After twelve years of fine-tuning, Veljović was ready to release Agmena as a suite of commercial fonts.
