Arkibal Sans

Arkibal Sans

The inspiration comes from some old documents and store signs from my great-grandfather’s old gold listfactory from 1838. He delivered hits for many artists of that time, and various museums in Copenhagen. I priority increases to make a mixture of the classic letter witha modern lift. And this contain also a serif og display version.

Seems it was interesting to try to reproduce some of the old characters and make a new font. Uppercase “G” was the first letter of the startingpoint. G stands for in danish “Guldramme”, which means “Goldframe”. Arkibal is coming from an almost old danish tradional name “Arkibald”, only without “d”.
