    HORT: A typeface inspired by Bergen, a city in Norway

Graphic Design: Essential design viewing, a whole load of new HORT updates!

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Trust HORT to turn up only weeks into the new year with a shedload of work and slam it down on the table for us all to gawp at. While we’ve spent the tail-end of last year in steamed-up pubs literally drinking our money away, these design champs were busy collating a body of work that would take a normal studio about five times longer to complete.

From Norwegian city-inspired typefaces to entire new magazine redesigns, this portfolio is bursting with genuinely exciting new ventures that are actually making the world a better place. Take, for example, the coffee cups they designed for Happy Cups that are genuinely beautiful. Disposable coffee cups, beautiful! I know! Don’t even get us started on those posters for the infamous Drawing Club, those are some of the most beautiful “doodles” you’ll ever see. Thank you HORT, again. The design world would be lost without you.
