Typography as a discipline is nowadays mostly considered as authorial, and in common practice we usually encounter an approach where the authors of fonts carefully guard and hide their know-how and do not share workflows/"unfinished" files. This creates a kind of mysterious and impenetrable membrane around the whole field, in which there is distrust of others and a pervasive fear of loosing one's own "originality". All of this is done to favour their position on the market and to accumulate financial and social capital. The bachelor's thesis presents various problems pervading typographic practice, draws conclusions on how these problems can be combated, and "humbly" invites typographers to collaborate, be community-minded, share knowledge and ideas, and presents the limits/negatives of existing alternatives. This brings to light the author's motivations for creating the inprogress.type platform and how this tool can help to re-set existing paradigms. Inprogress.type is a platform/online tool for sharing, collectively designing and/or incrementally re-designing open-source fonts, visualizing and archiving the whole process, breaking the boundaries between author, designer and end-user, and creating a digital environment helpful for self-education of students and laics. This tool is based on the lack of alternatives in the online space.
Exploring the means of collaborative music sharing and its alternatives
Mikač, Jan ; Suchánek, Jiří (referee) ; Kubíková, Zuzana (advisor)
The bachelor thesis deals with the topic of sharing, streaming and archiving music in the internet environment and the design of a platform that is an alternative to the existing ones. Nowadays, when there are countless streaming services, I miss a space dedicated to music sharing, regardless of the preferences of these particular streaming services, both from the users and the performers. Beyond that, however, I would like to create a space for meaningful archiving and categorization of music with maximum personalization for individual users. In the text, I will therefore describe my own motivations, inspirations, individual features, but also my own experiences with using existing streaming platforms, or tools that are currently widely used, but also those that are less well known and operate on open-source or user-made principles. I then use this experience as a basis for the prototype itself (working name of the prototype - MSP).

The bachelor thesis focuses on enhancing the perception of food, individual ingredients and time spent eating. Along with this, it addresses the question of how our minds' reactions to tastes, their combinations and the time in which we perceive them change. Through a theoretical reflection on cooking and eating culture, the author explores the factors that can influence attitudes towards cooking and thus enhance its sustainability. The author's ambition is to address the culinary imagination, that is, mastering the art of pairing flavours without the need for recipes. She sees this practice as more sustainable. The author herself has worked as a chef. The bachelor's thesis is therefore also based on practical experience. The topic of cooking and sharing meals is also addressed in the author's studio, which is one of the main motivations for her work on this topic.
SocialMaps Manifesto
Škobrtal, Petr ; Leitgeb, Šimon (referee) ; Kubíková, Zuzana (advisor)
In the past two decades, a digital copy of the world has been created with perfect precision. It is an unprecedented achievement of the third modernity, and the speed of its creation is fascinating. We walk through it daily and are a part of it without reflecting on its existence, its nature and its unclear transactional relationship. We have come to see the various mapping services and applications as obvious innovations. A simple fragment of the quantum of functionalities of our devices. Calculator, clock, email, maps. But a digital copy of the world was not easy to build. And it was certainly expensive. Yet it is offered to us for our use without any restraints. The central motivation of the companies that have created this virtual space — in which the dramas of humanity are notionally played out — is to monitor it continuously and carefully. Our behaviour, activities and interactions are the desired compensation. They are constantly analysed and interpreted into data that can be traded. The loss of privacy is a tax we pay. An unspoken transactional relationship has been sealed without our knowing its exact terms and consequences; and the corporations that formulate them are rapaciously avoiding legislative-legal framework. Map applications, which are today the most important product of cartography, are the sneaking hegemony that reduces the world to a few categories whose primary imperative is profit. Many of them use the map as a platform in which places are inserted to represent a simple reflection of the capitalist perception of the world. Shops, hotels, bars, restaurants, businesses. Such maps manipulate our view of the world by how they portray it and what they present to us in a bounded way. And by our conformity, we unwittingly accede to these practices and help to preserve their status quo. We can easily decide not to use the digital map services and applications in place, but they are only the symbolic tip of an ambitious project of monitoring our privacy. Maps are hopelessly caught up in a tangled web of Big Tech, software and the Internet of Things. They are drained of their influence and limitless potential to serve a single purpose. It is therefore necessary to seek a ways forward for a paradigm shift affecting the form, nature and function of digital web maps. This manifesto offers some of them.
Who is a designer
Dohnalová, Kateřina ; Staňková, Hana Grulichová (referee) ; Kubíková, Zuzana (advisor)
To what extent can anyone call themselves a designer? Where is the line that decides why and who is a designer? The aim of this bachelor thesis is to answer these simple questions. The author simultaneously draws from her own long term experience, working as a main bartender in a pub, where she tries to redesign the the core processes of this pub based on her participatory observation. As an employee she has a bigger potential of resolving the existing problems, which she finds absurd while working, or she can suggest their solution in a way that is more sustainable and co-worker friendly, but at the same time takes into account the boss and the community that shapes around the said place. The long term employer or an invited expert (designer) doesn't actually perform the job. Which means that they can't assess the situation and recommend a meaningful solution.

Design and Development of Tools for Extended Use of the Platform
Burak, Vasil ; Fišerová, Barbora (referee) ; Kubíková, Zuzana (advisor)
Bakalářská práce se zabývá již existující platformou, která je místem pro ukládání digitálního obsahu, vytváření tématických kolekcí a propojování nápadů. používám na denní bázi, ať už v osobní, tak v kolektivním životě. Při používání narážím na limity, které omezují moji workflow. Rozhodl jsem se tyto limity pojmenovat a za pomoci mnou navržených a vytvořených softwarových řešení se je pokusit posunout. 
World: Anything bad happens. Internet: Let’s make a meme of it!
Balcaříková, Ivana ; Heřmanová,, Marie (referee) ; Kubíková, Zuzana (advisor)
So called Generation Z was born between the years 1995 and 2012. They came into The World when The Internet was already in full bloom. Gen Z and Internet are inseparable. It's their natural habitat. They move across the internet waters skillfully without any problem and at all times. The feeds of Gen Z kids are constantly filled with new information, themes, phenomenon, trends, memes. That makes the nature of the whole generation rather nihilistic and in surrender to the constant shit storm which they have to deal with every day. The biggest weapon of the Gen Z is undoubtedly their specific kind of humor. Memes, references, reaction videos are their biggest coping mechanism. These things can be seen all through their normal day to day life. This format however gives plenty of space to individual creators to express their frustration with The World's situation which they get exposed to on a daily basis. It's only natural for them to be interested and engage in bigger themes such as racism, refugee crisis, climate change or LBTQIA+ problems. Unlike their previous generations, Gen Z uses memes and humor to cope. This Bachelor theses focuses on mapping the content that through specific meme format on Tiktok explores the big themes of today's day and age. Do these short clips have any potential informative or educational value or are they just sometimes funny, cool or offensive videos that teens make to keep up with the trends. If it is so, is it problematic?
Digital Public Services
Dobeš, Lukáš ; Fincato, MA André (referee) ; Kubíková, Zuzana (advisor)
The diploma thesis co-develops Digital Public Services, a flat hierarchy group and its products, services, tools and methods, which are primarily in the field of organizational design. In addition to the specific work, it summarizes the gradual evolution of collective management protocols and its context. Rather than a comprehensive description of "how to make decisions", it presents the common interplay of members and shared values which include, for example, the rejection of originality and competition, authorship and authority.
Service Design
Fišerová, Barbora ; Dědic, Filip (referee) ; Kubíková, Zuzana (advisor)
The diploma thesis describes the design of your own web application within the long-term collaborative project In a small team, we reflect on our own workflow and designer work. Currently, the common goal is the design and development of MVP for processing text, images and other graphic material into any graphic output - graphic editor As part of the project, we have also focused for a long time on the concept of compatible MVPs for text editing or data management and user research. The starting point of is the principle of DRY (Don't repeat yourself) and the principles of web technologies. We test how certain workflows can be automated and facilitate the collaboration of designers, text authors, editors, proofreaders, etc., or emancipate users from unnecessary activities.
