DESIGN LETTERS + Arne Jacobsen

November 8, 2012

When we were walking around in a really rainy Helsingborg, I happened to find a store selling cups with letters on then. I was totally drawn to them, walked into the store, checked them out, and read about them. The typography on the cup was drawn by the Danish architect Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971), and the letters were originally created in 1937 for internal signage at the Aarhus City Hall. I truly fell in love, and bought my letter, and wouldn’t mind getting some other ones too. Find out more about the cups here.

    I’m a fan of the letters as well! I like the font and signage, thanks for the history on them. Also, sometimes it’s just nice to have a mug that is only yours and has your letter on it. Some days you need small victories like these.
