Oslo Børs is Norway's only regulated marketplace for trading shares, equity certiﬁcates and securities, and the only independent stock exchange within the Nordic region. It has provided a professional environment to trade in since 1819, and embraced innovation and evolving client needs through its two sister companies.
With Claude Garamond’s classic typeface as inspiration we developed a font with a distinct expression, a confident mix of past and present that reflects the significant history and expertise that is Oslo Børs. Sharp corners allied to soft terminals within the serifs and letterforms allowed the font to project the authority of Oslo Børs within a modern concept.
