Design Letters is a Danish design company, founded in 2009 by former copywriter and journalist Mette Thomsen. With a huge passion for words and letters, Thomsen's ingenuity saw her brand kick-start the typographical design trend. In 2011 Design Letters launched a new series featuring the iconic typography, hand-drawn in 1937 by the world-famous Danish architect Arne Jacobsen. Jacobsen's minimalist, the monochrome design is typical of his Scandinavian aesthetic for clean, modern and versatile everyday objects. Shop Design Letters.
