Kostic Type Foundry is located in Belgrade, Serbia. It is a small private foundry, run in cooperation between Zoran and Nikola Kostić (father and son).
Zoran began making fonts in 1987 out of necessity, since his DTP studio needed PostScript Cyrilic fonts which, at the time, were being made by no one. While designing his first font, he discovered a whole new world whose beauty and complexity wove such a spell over him that he’s under its hold to this very day. He made a number of Cyrillic fonts as a counterpart to the existing Latin fonts, as well as original fonts like: Batke, Beograd, KosticSans, KosticSerif, Lapidary Capitals, Sketch, DesignerRound, Why Square (licence by Linotype) and Just Square (licence by Linotype) and about ten others, designed on the basis of Old Church Slavonic scripts (Hilandarski Ustav and Monah with 6,400 characters each).
Nikola grew up watching and learning from his father’s work. He graduated in graphic design at the Faculty of Applied Arts (Belgrade) in 2003, and now works as a freelance graphic designer.
In 2010 they decided to join forces and dedicate their work to type design.
