- Margrethe II
Typeface made for the Danish Monarchy
- The Danish Monarchy has existed for over a thousand years and is one of the oldest - a Monarchy that lives by traditions but finds pride in adapting to modern ways of society. With this in mind, I developed the font "Margrethe II" - made for the Danish Monarchy with inspiration from both present and past.The concept behind the font is built on the Danish King Law back from 1665 - a milestone within Danish history and also an early example of the roman font and its entering in Denmark. Based on the Danish King Law I developed the font "Margrethe II" with inspiration from the printed King Law and its different letters. Throughout the process of making "Margrethe II" I have concentrated on speciffic details of the King Law lettering and given the new letters a modernized shape in form of a continuous consequence and a finer detailing.
