Creating for the eyes & heart
I LOVE MY TYPE is a visual universe where designer Kathrine Højris does what she loves most: creating what speaks to the eye and heart. The beautifully designed posters, notebooks, cards and other creative goods follow one mission: to speak to people on a personal level. With topics like self-worth, relationships, friendships and family, I LOVE MY TYPE offers something for everyone who appreciates cool design with a meaning behind it.
How it all started
With I LOVE MY TYPE, which was founded in 2013, graphic designer Kathrine Højris has realized her dream of combining her passion for self-development with her interest in graphic and interior design. What started with little sticky notes directed to herself, is now a popular brand that encourages people all over the world to believe in themselves and practice self-love.

From Copenhagen to the world
Partners for life
Behind the scenes of I LOVE MY TYPE are Kathrine Højris and Thomas Bærnholdt – partners in both life and business. Together with their two kids (4 and 6), they share an apartment in Copenhagen, Denmark. As a graphic designer, Kathrine provides the creative talent of I LOVE MY TYPE, designing all products herself, while Thomas represents the business side of the brand.
We love the process
One of Kathrine’s favourite statements was also her very first typographic print: LOVE THE PROCESS. Something that Kathrine herself found to be hard for long periods of her life. She often found herself in situations where she didn’t have all the answers and wasn’t sure of where to go. It can feel unfamiliar and unknown, and she started to fear that she would never reach her goals. But at some point, Kathrine realized that all she had to do was trust the process and fall in love with every part of it. Embracing the ups and downs of the journey, watching herself grow and learn, and appreciating the whole ride to the finish line. This made it easier for her to enjoy the things she was doing right now, and fall in love with the process of creating something new. Today, loving the process is one of the strongest core values of I LOVE MY TYPE, and a message that we want to share with everyone out there.

Sustainable paper lovers
Sustainable quality paper
To us, quality means everything. With the use of eco-friendly materials, we want to make sure our art prints not only look good, but FEEL good, too. That’s why we use 100% recycled luxury paper for almost every product we make. When that’s not possible, we make sure to print on sustainable materials, like FSC-labeled or Nordic Ecolabelled quality paper. Besides being environmentally-friendly, the paper has a beautiful structure and brings out the best in our prints. A sensational experience for us, and an act of kindness to the planet.
Embossed by hand
As a final touch to our art prints, we add a small, elegant quality stamp that we emboss to the paper by hand. This discreet, tone in tone signature ensures you that the poster is exclusively from us to you.
Our great passion is to create and collect beautiful moments, and by that we mean visually aesthetic experiences that stimulate the eyes and touch the heart. We get our inspiration from everywhere: our family, books, nature, the people around us, series, magazines, architecture, … Sometimes it’s the big experiences in life, like becoming a parent, other times it’s something as simple as spotting a pretty house number at a door.
There are so many things we get excited about, things that make our eyes light up and our heart smile. These are the moments we are passionate about, it’s our driving force and why we do what we do. At I LOVE MY TYPE, we want to collect and create these beautiful moments and share them with you. Whether it’s a big poster that reminds you of your self-worth, or a small appreciation card that you give to a loved one – we hope it creates a beautiful experience somewhere out there, a moment where both your eyes and heart are reminded of the beauty in this world.
Why 'I LOVE
I LOVE MY TYPE is one of our most powerful messages and the name of our brand. It reminds us that love is the cornerstone for all that we do, in life, work and everywhere else.
