    Kościół zbudowali Aniołowie (“The Church built by the Angels”) is a temporary exhibition dedicated to the history of The Assumption Church in Giecz (Poland). In collaboration with Krzysztof Domaradzki my work was to create and develop all identity, elements such as branding, exhibition graphics as well as brochures, posters and catalogues. — Piotr Buczkowski, Heroes Design

     

    The primary typeface that has been used here is Monotype Baskerville. For many, this family belongs to the boring old classics. They may prefer more recent designs like Štorm’s Baskerville with its attractive optical sizes; or looser, less familiar interpretations from that genre, like Matthieu Cortat’s Bonesana or Jackson Cavanaugh’s Harriet Series. Often, the killer argument for Monotype Baskerville is that it is free for those on a Mac, since it comes bundled with OS X. Also, it is quite unique among the seriffed system font families in that it comprises six styles – that’s two more than, say, Times New Roman or Palatino. In version 7 (as included with OS X Lion), each of the fonts contains about 1,100 glyphs, enabling language support not only for Central European languages, but also for Russian and Greek.
