Kasper Pyndt Rasmussen (DK) is a type- and graphic designer from Copenhagen and the founder of Approximate Type (approxtype.com). He currently shares a tiny studio with Hanna Bergman, Mads Sandholm, Reidar Pritzel and Laura Silke.
The starting point and main engine of his practice is type, language and the relationship between the two. Through this exchange he aims to develop straight-forward design solutions that emphasise conceptual sturdiness and contextual (self)awareness. This results—mostly—in the production of typefaces, books, websites, and visual identities.
In 2016 he obtained his MA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ School for Design after a detour to The Netherlands, completing a year at The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. He has been working independently since January 1, 2018.
