David Březina, born in Brno, Czech Republic, graduated in Informatics at the Masaryk University in Brno in 2005, spent a term at the Denmarks Designskole in Copenhagen in 2004 and graduated with distinction from the MA in Typeface Design at the University of Reading (UK) in 2007. From 2004 to 2007 he also ran his own design studio DAVI, with projects in graphic, web and interface design. Back in Brno he is currently working with Tiro Typeworks (Canada) as an associate designer and studio Fleuron as a critic and idea coordinator. He occasionally publishes in the Typo magazine.
His interest in non-Latin type design and typography of multilingual and complex texts manifests in the multi-script family Skolar and Surat for Latin and Gujarati, that he started during his MA in Reading. During his time in Denmark, he has also designed the sans-serif Codan inspired by the city of Copenhagen.
