Press Release, December 2017
You are cordially invited to the: Launch of BD-Clip – A typeface by Asger Behncke Jacobsen & Mads Wildgaard, published by Bold Decisions.
It is our pleasure to invite you to the launch of BD-Clip, a typeface revived by Asger Behncke Jacobsen in 2016, and completed with Mads Wildgaard in 2017. Clip’s design is as obscure as its’ history. It was produced by the Spanish type distributor Letrayon somewhere between 1960 and 1979 and sold as envelopes of sticker sheets. Such an envelope, containing uppercase A–Z, was discovered in an office supply store in Amsterdam in 2016. From these drawings the missing characters were extrapolated. Please join us on Friday the 22nd of December at 18.00 for X-mas salutations and the release of BD-Clip.
Bold-Decisions is an online foundry, founded by Mads Wildgaard, Kristoffer Halse-Sølling and Rasmus Schønning in 2015. Bold-Decisions offers retail typefaces and has produced custom fonts for a wide range of commercial clients and cultural institutions.
Asger Behncke Jacobsen is a Copenhagen based freelance designer and programmer. He works mainly in the cultural field for a broad spectrum of institutions, artists and designers.
