The publication “In Search for Typographic Solutions” was created during the COVID-19 Pandemic by Ognjen Gligorijević, a Graphic and Type Designer from Serbia. The book showcases 27 works designed during the author’s period of typographic exploration. It consists of three chapters: Typography, Publication Design, and Poster Design. The author’s intention with this book is to inspire other designers to be true to themselves.
“After the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, I embarked on an adventure to explore typography more profoundly. This inquiry is what kept me inspired during my hard times in quarantine. Whilst searching for typographic solutions, I also underwent a self-explorative journey. I introspectively discovered myself and confronted both my raw side and the side which I was afraid to face. The Typography chapter is in a way a visual representation of that journey. It reflects my random thoughts and the music I was listening to while making the typeface. However, my main aspiration is to encourage other designers to go one step further and do the things they are scared of doing. I believe this is how we find our purpose because the only way to find something is to search for it.”–
