Frode Helland is a visual artist, graphic designer and type designer – a reader, observer and maker of letterforms, drawing upon historical research, socio-cultural perspectives and creative collaboration to shape and challenge visual language. He gratuated with a Master’s degree in graphic design and illustration from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts in 2023. Frode makes up one third of the Norwegian type foundry Monokrom Skriftforlag, a tiny, not-so-cool, and painfully slow, independent publisher of original high quality typefaces. He is an occasional self-publisher of zines and cassettes. Contact, for portfolio or collaboration requests.
