The identity fountain

Monument and Reckless are the identity fonts for the Norwegian Academy of Music.

The fonts have been chosen for their distinctive qualities and the interaction quality between them- an essential visual tool for identity. Therefore, you must carefully follow the guidelines for how to use the fountain.


Monument Grotesk is our primary font.

Monument Grotesk is a sans serif font published by the Dinamo font publisher. Monument is a modern interpretation of the classic grotesque font. Monument is available in three variants (for our identity) – regular, medium and bold.
