Fonts

Beneath

While working with The Silent Age, I was searching for a font which summed up early Seventies’ movie titles. I couldn’t find any, so I decided to make one myself. Beneath is that ultra heavy, tightly spaced font that you always need when you want to say something epic or powerful. Beneath does not belong on a matchbox or on the spine of a pixi-book. It belongs in a stadion or on the hull of a supertanker!

 
 
 
 
 
 

April Font

The intention with the April Font was quite simple: To make a sans serif font that smiles! How does a font smile? I had no idea, so I basically kept adjusting the overall look and feel until I felt that the font was smiling. Not surprisingly, I learned that curves does most of the job. Deviating from normal typography conventions also makes the font seem much more casual.

 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Future Shock

Future Shock is a retro-futuristic font, highly inspired by early eighties science fiction covers. The font is rigidly grid-based, but softened with a few foolish late Seventies curves. I named it after a book written by Alvin Toffler in 1970, in which he imagines that future generations of mankind will be exposed to an overload of information and thus enter a state of shock.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Elevator

Elevator is a broad spaced caps only font. I made it more than 10 years ago while I was a student at the Danish Design School. I installed the font on a few computers there, and since then I have seen it here and there. It’s nice to know that my font has a life somewhere else and is used for writing words I can’t even imagine
