A merry day to all! With only three more days until Christmas, we present our 21st Calendar wish.

This time by product designer, Hanna Dís Whitehead, selected by Sigríður Sigurjónsdóttir.

She put together a cheerful letter to Santa asking for a font from Or Type by Guðmundur Úlfarsson & Mads Freund Brunse.

Or Type is an online type foundry presenting and selling typefaces created by GUNMAD, a Reykjavík/London based design studio created by Guðmundur & Mads. Their typefaces have been used for several design projects, recently by The Sundance Film Festival 2015 identity (see more on our blog).


Every day up until the 24th, we ask our friends – designers, curators, architects and other wonderful folks – to answer the question:

“Which Icelandic designer/architect would you like to give you a present, and what would it be?”

The chosen designer/architect will then be the next one to answer.

Have a look again tomorrow, when we will reveal Guðmundur’s wish!
