Background

In 2002, the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter (DN) changed from broadsheet to tabloid “ a change that came along with a major impact on DN•s journalism, editing, and design. Pangea design’s Creative Director, Örjan Nordling, had already worked with DN as a design consultant in 1996. In 2000, DN had been redesigned under the leadership of Mario Garcia. For the new design Nordling had created DN Bodoni exclusively for Dagens Nyheter. The change to tabloid called for a more compact setting and Pangea design was commissioned to produce a matching sans serif for Sweden’s largest daily newspaper. With assistance from Nordling’s colleague Göran Söderström, DN Grotesk has evolved into FF Dagny.
