BYENS design Danmark
BYENS design produces realistic replicas of historical ‘city furniture’ of Copenhagen on a 1:12 scale, from tiny benches and fire hydrants to cute little street lamps and phone booths.
These historical objects may belong in another era, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find them all over the country, will be featured in museum shops and luxury stores.
We were asked to create appealing stationery and promotional material that stayed true to the historical era.
Always up for a trip down memory lane, we created the typography by hand, imitating the conventional printing technique of the 19th century: the letters have slight graphic differences and are placed by hand, thus creating a more ‘organic’ typography.
