When love is a Scandinavian Typography poster




I have been in love with  graphic and typography posters for a very long time but until now haven't actually  been selling any in the shop. All that changed when I got in touch with Tobias one of the creative people behind HOWAREYOUSWEDEN!  They brought out  "Aa", their first ever poster earlier this month and I immediately knew that it had to go on our shelves ....




I must be honest here..  my first love goes to Playtype! I've been an admirer for a long time and have often been swooning over their posters when reading Danish magazines. It would feel like a betrayal to stock the "Aa" poster without also bringing in Playtype so I'm very proud to say that Skandivis has now become the first UK stockist of these posters too! 








You may not have come across Playtype...but Playtype is an online type foundry started by the Copenhagen-based design agency, e-Types.  Quite apart from their range of amazing typeface they sell these fabulous posters with blown up letters in a range of fonts.





















The above roomshots are photos from as featured in the book Northern Delights as well as in Danish magazines Rum(top) and Bo Bedre (bottom)

    1. Why am I not surprised my trendsetting friend:-) I've had my eye on them for a while but as I never quite manage to fit any in my luggage decided to go ahead and stock them. Looking forward to catching up tomorrow. x
