Sindre Bremnes (1970) started drawing type as a means of escapism. Working as an editor in various newspapers for a decade-and-a-half, he became increasingly frustrated by the sad state of Norwegian typography. So he decided to do something about it.
Bremnes’ type has little in common with the mainstream products of today’s young generation of type designers. Instead, he draws inspiration from old-world crafts and natural phenomena, vintage Nordic hand-lettering, early polyphony and the tension in wood-grain. His main focus is typefaces for printing in smallish sizes on paper.
