description

www.copenhagentype.dk

Sign painters decorated the cityscape of Copenhagen in the first part of the 20th century, they made the walls speak to the customer with a great variation of type and colorful type images. In my graduation project I dived into picture archives, explored, analyzed and documented type in the city of Copenhagen.

I created a dedicated website { www.copenhagentype.dk } to facilitate the huge organised image gallery and to make it accessible.

Based on my findings a new type family “KØBENHAVN FAMILY” grew, a family of 5 typefaces.

The typefaces:
*Asta
*Ægir
*Nora
*Palæ
*Vester

— Please go visit COPENHAGENTYPE.DK for further introduction and to explore the impressive image gallery.

— And the Instagram feed @cphtype { instagram.com/cphtype } where I will continue to post images of type found in the cityscape of Copenhagen.

— Also visit and joined the Facebook group COPENHAGEN TYPE: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1382914875287632/
