This article was written in plain ol' Arial, but we could have opted for the new font Copenhagen, which designers hope will help market the Danish capital.
Three designers have created a new font inspired by the Danish capital. The new font, simply called Copenhagen, was developed by three experienced designers who say that their new creation pays homage to the city and can play an essential role in future branding campaigns.

“The typeface Copenhagen is inspired by the city's culture and the visual environment and the Danish typeface culture during the 20th century,” the designers wrote on their website
 
“The typeface is specially designed for Copenhagen and will contribute to a visual profiling of the capital, aimed at both visiting tourists to the city and its citizens,” they added. 
 
The font's design is based upon the Danish capital's features. 
 
“The font Copenhagen is in its expression broad and low as the city itself. The letters contain slightly rounded corners and soft forms which adds a welcoming and friendly expression to the font,” the designers wrote. 
 
In addition to the lettering, the typeface also includes a series of symbols inspired by the city including Tivoli, the Opera, Copenhagen City Hall and, of course, cyclists.
