Bold Monday

Bold Monday is an independent font foundry established by Paul van der Laan & Pieter van Rosmalen and based in The Hague, The Netherlands. It regards itself as the typographical equivalent of a so called "indie" record company where a DIY mentality and artistic freedom are the highest values. The Bold Monday collection is therefore diverse and reflects the personal fascinations from its designers.
