Eksell Display is a unique typeface from 1962, designed by the legendary swedish designer Olle Eksell (1918–2007).
Olle was a prolific artist who couldn’t resist sketching out whatever ideas came to mind. His work covered a broad range, but this was the only complete typeface.
The letters were drawn in Olle’s five square meter studio in Stockholm, six years after he designed the classic Mazetti eyes. We carefully digitized the letters and developed a family of four optical styles, including a stencil version. Have fun with it, we think Olle did.
