About Peter Biľak, Ondrej Jób, Andrej Krátky

Peter Biľak, Ondrej Jób, Andrej Krátky are the team behind Fontstand, an app that allows users to test-drive thousands of fonts from 20 international type foundries and independent designers for an hour at no charge. It’s a novel idea for design students, professional designers, or anyone on a short deadline who might want to use a particular font for a one-time project, as traditional licensing models require users to pay for a full license regardless of usage.

Conceived by independent type designers specifically to address the concerns of their industry, it provides customers with a simple way to try fonts for free and rent them by the month for a fraction of their regular price, an ideal solution if you need a font for just one project and don’t plan on using it again. At present, Fontstand features thousands of fonts and font families from more than 20 of the world’s top independent font foundries, including the work of internationally recognized designers.
