ABOUT







Stefán Kjartansson

Designer (b. Siglufjordur, Iceland), who got a BA in graphic design from Iceland Arts in 1993, and lived in Reykjavik. He took a job in Atlanta, GA, designing for CNN.com. In the next five years, Stefan worked his way from interactive designer to creative director. He co-founded the interactive agency Armchair, and has directed projects such as Coca-Cola's M5.

His typefaces:

  • GOR (1996) at GarageFonts, an English font with a Cyrillic/Armenian feel, expanded to a ten-font family in 2002.
  • In 2001, he designed the Reykjavik font family at Psy/Ops. Pick up four free weights from The European Space Agency's site.
  • In 2010, he created the Armchair Modern family of elliptical sans typefaces, from AGauge (hairline) to EGauge (very fat and yummy)---Armchair Modern was derived from the logo created for Armchair Media Group by Stefan Kjartansson. Its shape is influenced by the long elliptic forms of furniture and TV tubes. The design is ultra-modern, reminiscent of work by Mark Newson and Arne Jacobsen furniture. Homepage at Armchair Media.
  • At YouWorkForThem, he published Black Sabbath (2008), an elegant ultra black slab serif typeface.
  • Cumulus and Foam (2010) is totally experimental, with shapes that evoke both plastic and sex.
  • In 2015, he designed the tall ultra-condensed typeface family Cinderblock.
