aparat type&design

is a Ljubljana-based visual communication practice specialising in graphic design, typography and custom typeface design. Since 2001 it is run by Domen Fras, an architect with a master degree in communication design from Central Saint Martins in London, now an associate professor for typography at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, University of Ljubljana.

Between 2002 and 2008 Maja B. Jančič, a witty illustrator and a marvelous person was a studio partner. From 2011 to 2014 Malvina Lubec, a keen graphic designer with a delicate sense for typography joined the team.

Aparat’s work ranges from coins to wayfinding systems, from logos to visual identities, from typefaces to books and has been recognised by Brumen Foundation, BIO (Biennial of Industrial Design) Ljubljana and Slovenian Book Fair.

Regardless the scope of the task we always strive to develop a dialogue with our clients. During the creative process we plan our methods thoughtfully and finalize the designs with a distinctive typographic approach.
