ABOUT







PLEKS [Mads Quistgaard]

Mats Quistgaard is creative director at Pleks, a graphic design studio in Denmark. He studied at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture and at Central Saint Martins, MA. Then he worked as a designer for Sleazenation, and art-directed and designed Frieze magazine. He co-founded design collective APOGS in 2001. He taught at the The Royal Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture and Central Saint Martins, and founded Pleks in 2004. He founded Danish Faces in 2005.

He created a number of corporate typefaces, such as an identity typeface for the public channel DR (Danish State Radio and Television) called DR1, DR2 and DRi (Dutch Radio, 2003---this font is by apogs.com, and the Dutch Radio is not the Danish Radio, so I am uncertain as to whether it belongs in this list at all); FRH; KRAT (an Egyptian face); Telia (grunge); Nyco Sans (for NYCOMED); BeoFont (2007; for Bang & Olufson).
