The typeface DN Bodoni was my first commercial font project. It was a collaboration with Örjan Nordling, at Pangea Design, who was the supervisor for my master’s degree project. Just a few weeks after examination, Örjan asked me to join him in the remake of the headline font for Scandinavia’s largest newspaper, Dagens Nyheter. I worked in Gothenburg and Örjan in Stockholm. A major part of my job focused on the italic. The Bodoni version we settled on was based on early prints of Giambattista Bodoni found at Carolina Rediviva at Uppsala University.
