Dagens NyheterBeställare: Pangea/IDN
The design agency Pangea was commissioned by the newspaper Dagens Nyheter (DN) to design a brand new Bodoni typeface for headline use, and came to us to co-operate in the development of this typeface. Together we visited Uppsala University where we gathered inspiration from the studies of old original Bodoni prints (and yes, we had to wear gloves :-). Örjan Nordling at Pangea made sketches by hand, which we then vectorized, fine-tuned and sent updates back and forth until the design was finalized, glyph by glyph. In all we co-designed and produced four new weights (Light, Regular, Bold and Extra Bold), and Regular was later completed with a beautiful italic which was designed by Carolina Laudon.
