New Typography Lab

Feb 13. 2017  ·  2 min read

We are excited to announce that we are taking our dedication to typography to a whole new level. Not only will ÅBC Design be joining Kontrapunkt, but together we are establishing a whole new typography laboratory.

The laboratory will consist of ÅBC founders Torsten Lindsø Andersen, Rasmus Michaëlis and Kontrapunkt’s own Bo Linnemann. All three internationally acclaimed typography designers.

“At Kontrapunkt we have always considered typography an essential part of creating unique brands. The fact that we are now dedicating an entire lab to the very skillset we are perhaps most famous for feels completely natural. It gives us room to experiment while we refine and expand our typographical development process, which gives us a world-class set-up,” says Executive Design Director & Founding Partner Bo Linnemann.

Having just won a prestigious award in Japan for the customised fonts developed in collaboration with ÅBC for Japanese car brands Nissan, Infiniti and Datsun, Kontrapunkt is experiencing an increased demand for global typographies that link languages and alphabets. With the new lab and greater focus on designing innovative typographical solutions as part of the complete brand experience, Kontrapunkt is now able to provide typography to a broader client base.
