— Budoucí minulost/The Future Past: Catalog, Exhibition design
Catalog for the photo exhibition at OFF_Festival presents the work of
several students chosen from graduate theses projects from the Institute
of Creative Photography. 8 artists presented are personally involved to
a greater or lesser extent in the depicted themes, which are often a part
of their own personal history. They record empty places and scars, deal
with themes that are not present or discussed in contemporary society,
or photograph things that are now gone and defy being captured by the
camera. Curators Tomáš Pospěch and Štěpánka Stein.

— Identity for 1st Annual International Photography Festival OstravaPhoto 2015
The basic element of the logo and of the festival´s visual are the basic photographic formats: square, portrait, landscape. In typography these elements are used in proportion to the size and media. This basic typographic expression is then expanded to include illustrations which motifs and themes are inspired by the photographer´s practice. Each edition of the festival will be delivered and designed by different illustrator. This year was illustrated by Timur Aloev.
— in-between points of view: Master Thesis Book, Graduate Thesis II.
Thesis book summarizes 2 years of study at RISD. It contains short essays, an interview with Radim Peško and projects which question graphic design´s ability to provide diverse perspectives and explore roles of objectivity and subjectivity. Original display typeface called "In-between" has been designed and used for the book cover. It mimics the idea of physical gaps, drawing attention to the in-between moments inside of individual letterforms.

— Typeface by Instructions
In this workshop with Jürg Lehni a task was to create a set of instructions. Together with Yejin Cho we have decided to create instructions which will guide you to construct a simple modular system, which will ultimately allow you to create letterforms.
— MISPRINTS SKETCHBOOKS
At RISD I was used to save misprints from my recent projects in order to create sketchbooks and practice binding possibilities.

— SUPER SUPERFICIALITY
During the weekend workshop with Leonardo Sonnoli at RISD our task was to promote the thing we hate. In collaboration with Yejin Cho we wanted to promote the superficiality. Even cliché has its own value. It saves time. Audience is familiar with cliché and it helps them to recognize the original context. Based on the study of the most popular words in advertising we created a simple online application that allows us to combine these words. The combination of these words could create only more superficial meaning.
— Damian Ortega at RISD Museum of Art
Damian Ortega’s installation in the space are deploying the principle
of fragmentation and spatial dispersion of forms. How would he
fragment letter forms? How would he allow viewers to experience this
process of deconstruction and perception? And how does it feel to
transfer three dimensional forms onto a flat surface? Even we’re looking
at the two dimensional poster, we can experience tension between the
three dimensional letterforms and the flatness of the canvas, between
colors, clarity and experiment, information and interpretation.
— Lars Müller Workshop at RISD: "A Small House by Le Corbusier"
During this workshop the brief was to design a publication for young architects and people, knowing little about Le Corbusier and nothing about the "Little House", often ignoring the relevance of books for their search for knowledge.
— Missed Connections–Something has disappeared: Book, Graduate Studio II.
This project was originally inspired by photographs of abandoned places. This places evoke me abandoned stories. Similar abandoned stories appear every day in the category "Missed connections" at craigslist. My intention was to create a chronologically ordered documentation that will show interaction with these people. These messages will never find the intended recipient and remain abandoned in the virtual space. Yet thanks to this virtual space they can be shared with others.

— Babel Font
Babel is intended for display purposes. Inspired by the polorhythms, syncopation and improvisation of jazz music, it consists of 1 regular and 2 alternate alphabets (along with numbers and symbols) for mixing and matching, allowing you to create spontaneous typographic forms. Originally developed for British jazz label "Babel Label" with kind help of tutor Cyrus Highsmith.

— AAAARG? FFFFOUND!
A self-initiated project – series of 10 magazines. Mixing my favourite text and image inspiration sources into a single pocket brochure.
— Book cover "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer"
Submision for Penguin´s contest to design a new cover. My intent was to reinvent Watteau´s Jupiter and Antiope painting, which was a bit over-used in older versions of the book cover. Instead of a continuation of this trend and cliché I rather used an aggressive liquid water spray to damage texture of Watteau´s painting to express murderer´s frustration.
