We want to promote Danish type design. Some of the fonts we release, were originally custom-made for clients and some are sketches and doodles that gradually have evolved into full-blown type families. Some were inspired by a particular context – for example “Nouvel” which was inspired by Jean Nouvel’s architecture for Koncerthuset, the new concert venue designed for the Danish Broadcasting Corporation. Others were designed to be purely functional and work under extreme circumstances - like “Medic” which is designed for emergency medicine.
Our friend and colleague, Henrik Kubel of A2-Type in London has contributed to the Playtype™ font collection with some of his well-crafted typefaces.
Browse through our selection of more than a hundred fonts and nearly 500 different font weights. You can also learn more about typography using our explanatory type glossary.
