When the chef comes to shake your hand

London team of Farfetch, luxury fashion platform featuring Burberry, Chanel, Fendi and hundreds more, contacted me few weeks before they had an event in a newly open restaurant/bar, Apollo.

Apollo is located in the Nyhavn harbour, Copenhagen (love it! It's the one always on the postcards) and the restaurant is quite hip.

Therefore I decided to make a special design/font for this one.

I checked the type of cutlery, pottery, menu design and colours, guest list, and created a more modern one, with rougher edges, less curly than what I specialise in.

My part was handwriting over 40 place cards, vouchers, and envelope addressing.

The whole event looked perfectly. It was a great team effort of Farfetch team, Apollo team, Annika Kruse studio, covered by Getty images, and others.

There were candles, lilies of the valley in cute vases on the table, and oh-wow looking cocktails.

And when one of the chefs came to shake my hand to give me a compliment on my work, I was really touched.

Thank you and hope to see you all again.

On-site at Geranium Restaurant

Until recently, I have always just heard of the Geranium restaurant in Copenhagen.

I knew it has 3 Michelin stars, the Instagram posts look marvelous and the view as well.

We were honored to be a part of a beautiful 2-day event of a Swiss wealth fund that took place at the Geranium.

Most of the cards were handwritten before in the atelier, but I was also present on-site for a few hours, should any last-minute changes appear, and to demonstrate the art.

Some of the guests liked to come watch the process of calligraphy, and some asked for extra cards to be written to take home. That was the best compliment!

The event was one of a kind. Thank you for having us.
