(INTRODUCTION) Custom typefaces for August Journal Issue 05: Copenhagen as a celebration of the early 20th-century Danish type tradition.
August is a new kind of travel magazine: Each issue focuses on one location, immersing the reader in its rich art, architecture, and design scene, and sharing encounters with locals, their habits, and their pleasures—in other words, the sights and souls that form the fabric of each city’s unique culture.
NR2154 created the custom typeface called August-KBH for August Journal as a celebration of the early 20th-century Danish type tradition.
Inspired by the iconic designs of Poul Henningsen, its small, romantic symbols pay homage to the tradition of Knud V. Engelhardt.

(LETTERFORMS) Clean, bold sans-serif with rounded corners and angular cuts inspired by Knud V Engelhardt's street signage designs.
