The Pavillon-Presse is a museum for the printing arts in Weimar, Germany. On September 30, 2022, Ukrainian brand and typeface designer Kateryna Korolevtseva will give a lecture as part of their regular type gathering. Korolevtseva will provide insights into typeface design in Ukraine: from historical heritage to modern works. The event is free of charge; a few tickets are still available.

The poster announcing the event was designed by Korolevtseva herself, using her Expromt. This “modern slab serif typeface with unusual inner high contrast” and varied proportions was “inspired by the Ukrainian type design heritage, especially by the cover of a collection of works for piano created by Ukrainian graphic artist Hryhoriy Berkovych in the early 1930s.” See more of this work in progress on the designer’s website.
