Danish Graphic designer Camilla Bengtsen has a portfolio of seriously considered, beautifully communicative design that belies her young age. A graduate of the Danish School of Media and Journalism she’s already amassed a wealth of industry experience, and it really shows – her application of varying graphic styles is testament to a thoughtful approach to design that goes beyond fleeting trends.
One of her standout projects is this clever identity for the Museum Sønderjylland, a group of Danish art museums that typographically experiments with the notion of a timeline of art movements, with the italicised lines representing defining moments in modern art, when movements have bucked a trend in pursuit of the avant-garde. Working with this notion she created a typeface based on Century Gothic, providing a distinctive identity that can be reduced down to a simple linear monogram.
