Gospodar is a typeface inspired by the subscript "Gospodar svetá" (Master of the World), included on the front page of a novel in several parts, The Count of Monte Christo (published in mid 20. century).
Typeface characters show design guidelines of the pre-war era (2nd world war). The idea of development origins from a wish to evolve traditional forms of typefaces which were used in Slovenia.
On the basis of the example we developed uppercase, arabic numbers and a basic character set.
This typeface was first published in the Newspaper of Slovenian Museums, ARGO ([53/1], 2010). Authors of the newspapers design are Žiga Testen and Ajdin Bašić. For the work on the project, they were awarded 1st prize in category Magazines and newspapers, at the 4th Biennial of Slovene Visual Communications (Brumen Fundation) in 2009.
