You by Festka is the new name for our top level of graphic design. Formerly called Festka Prime, we wanted to emphasize the personal aspect of the service. Limited to only twelve slots per year due to the extremely complex and demanding nature of the projects undertaken in this category, You by Festka offers the level of personalisation that goes far beyond anything available in the industry.

We thought it might be an idea to revisit the seven most popular bikes of 2020 in the form of a hitparade based on the number of likes they received on Instagram. Here they are with a few words by the company’s co-founder Michael Moureček.
It‘s Saturday morning at the beginning of April. Blue skies over Prague are covered by a thin haze. A small film crew are setting up their gear in the eerily empty Old Town Square – one of the historic city‘s most visited sites.
