Peter Biľak

Peter Biľak is a multidisciplinary designer based in the Netherlands. He is the founder of Typotheque, which specializes in type design, typography and branding. Whether as small as postage stamps, or as large as major exhibitions or branding projects, his work is characterised by deep engagement with the content and audience. He prefers to get involved in projects in their early, conceptual phases and many of his endeavours have challenged the status quo: he co-founded Dot Dot Dot, a seminal art and culture magazine, and also Works That Work, a magazine of unexpected creativity that not only broadened the definition of design but also introduced new models of operations for independent periodicals. He co-founded Fontstand, a new way of discovering and licensing fonts, as well as TPTQ Arabic, a company focused on the development of modern and authentic Arabic typefaces. His longstanding collaboration with the choreographer Lukáš Timulak led to starting Make Move Think, a foundation for interdisciplinary artistic collaboration. Peter writes and lectures worldwide about the possibilities of design.
