Bo vase has an MA in graphic design from Danmarks Designskole, Copenhagen.
"Visiting Typgraphic Beirut 2005 had a huge impact on me as a passionated type designer, and being a big fan of Huda S. AbiFares´s work I decided to work with arabic type design.
I have created 2 font families, the first to match the latin corporate font "Kontrapunkt".
My second font was designed to match the french newspaper Le Monde.
This type design is experimental - using only 2 versions of each letter.
The challenge was to match the colour as well as the space economical demands of a newspaper type.
Two weights was designed to match the serif type and one to match the sans serif."
Both fonts were featured in the book Arabesque (Die Gestalten)
Bo Vase is currently working at the Copenhagen/ London based luxury sports watch company Linde Werdelin.
