Naur Klint's number plate was designed at the studio by a design team including Lars Klint, Margit Besiakow, Lisbeth Gasparski and Birgit Forchhammer.
The goal was straight forward:
designing legible and identity-making numbers and letters based on the technical production requirements, so that beyond a maximum functionality in the form of readability there could be created a specific Danish identity.
After completion, the Danish politicians decided that the car owners, for a fee of course, should be free to determine what their number plate would contain, as long as there would be a minimum of two characters to ensure the identification.
The studio, at the time of Klint & Vejse, designed the remaining characters to make a complete alphabet available.
Due to enhanced legibility issues, the design is by no means in accordance with general rules of style. In particular, due to the demands for equalization of character widths and minimal corner curves for the sake of minting and to avoid foil damage. Especially the character "4" was heavily revised and is actually not in line with 4's historical roots. The bar to the right has been completely removed as 4 is the broadest of the numbers.
