    Following the murder of investigative journalist Ján Kuciak, who had been working on a piece linking high-level political corruption in Slovakia with the Italian mafia, people have taken to the streets in the largest protests since the 1989 Velvet revolution, demanding a thorough, independent investigation and the resignation of the government.

    The mass production of protest posters, flyers, banners and pins was made possible by a freely distributed DIY kit. Boris Meluš, co-designer of the kit templates (along with Ľubica Segečová, Boris Belan, Tomáš Klepoch, Diana Majdáková, Viliam Csino, Zuzana Suchová, and Romana Lazarová) from the creative center Nová Cvernovka, employed simple images inspired by the graphics of the 1989 Velvet Revolution and unified by the use of our font Manu Emphasis, from Typotheque, an energetic handwriting typeface, supported by Sonda by Ondrej Jób, an unreleased typeface.
