About us.

After studying Graphic Design at the University of Zagreb and many years of working in the Marketing Department of Croatian Telecom, Davor Pukljak founded Frontispis, a small studio for web and graphic design in 2013. At first, the company concentrated on web design, but over time, as opportunities for working with independent British publishers grew, graphic design, primarily book design, is now at the core of our business.

Why “frontispiece”?

In searching for a name for the company that will satisfy bureaucratic constraints and not be stereotypical, the name “frontispiece” came about. Back in the age when a book was not purchased together with the cover, customers, depending on their abilities, bounded books in leather, cardboard or paper. Until the early twentieth century, book covers were not illustrated. However, on the page opposite the title (and later on the title page itself), there was an engraving of the façade of a temple. This façade – or frontispiece – was the finest example of graphic art. This is why it was chosen to be the name of our company. Frontispiece describes what we strive for – top quality, excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail.
