Michal Landa is a designer with a specialisation in building brand identities. His practice is based on conceptual, typographic and engineering research.

After graduation from the studio of Graphic Design and New Media at UMPRUM, Michal was awarded the TonLab design residency and co-fouded the graphic design studio Parallel Practice. The studio focused on cultural projects, mainly on creating a visual identity for the Centre for Contemporary Art Futura. The project spanned over 6 years (2013–2019), involved more than 60 exhibitions and represented the gallery during an unprecedented stretch of activity under the direction of curator Michal Novotný.

The work of Parallel Practice has been exhibited internationally at The Biennale of Graphic Design in Chaumont (2019), Weltformat Graphic Design Festival in Lucern (2018), Graphic Design Festival Scotland (2017) and the Int’l Biennale of Graphic Design in Brno (2014, 2016). The studio’s project of Alphabet of Futura is presented as part of the public collections of UPM – Museum of Applied Arts, Prague. Parallel Practice was awarded The Most Beautiful Czech Book in 2014 and an award at 26th International Biennale of Graphic Design in Brno (2016).

In 2020 Michal Landa co-founded Adjacent Possible. A group research project and design practice focused on typography for the virtual space. The output is currently in the works and will be presented here in the future.
