Type Design

JØrgensans

——

The goal of the project was to design a unique workable typeface and develop a specimen that showcases the font in an artistic way.


Jørgensans is a geometric sans-serif typeface designed for both display and body copy. The inspiration came from its geometric predecessors as well as nordic typography. It borrows elements from grotesque typography and fluently incorporates it into the geometric style. The character of the font heavily relies upon near perfect geometric forms, using simple shapes as circles, triangles, and squares. The tall x-height contributes to the font’s legibility at small point sizes while the tall ascenders and descenders add to the overall personality of the font.
