Typeface made for the Danish Monarchy

Margrethe II
A typeface created for the Danish Monarchy
The Danish Monarchy has existed for over a thousand years and is one of the oldest in the world – a monarchy that lives by tradition 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 touching on both present and past.

The concept behind “Margrethe II” is built on the 1665 Danish King Law, a milestone within Danish history and also an early example of the roman font and its entering in Denmark. In the process of shaping the font, I have concentrated on specific details of the King Law lettering, modernizing them through continuous consequence and finer detailing.
