King Christian IV was one of the more prolific Danish kings regarding building shit. You seen his monogram on many buildings and I've always loved the simplicity of it. It's the one in red in the graphic, above. All of those royal types have their fancy monogram - which is just a logo in modern parlance. Here are all the logos of Danish monarchs since 1426.
Interesting to see the uniformity of their personal #branding in the design across six centuries. Christian IV, however, nailed it. A #logo that is timeless and could easily be something a company or boy band came up with in 2015.
Christian III and II just went with the C, without their designated number, which was cheeky or just bad legacy branding After Christian IV, Frederik III stuck to the programme but then Christian V went all squiggly and giggly on us and that stuck around for awhile. Frederik VII went back to the logo roots, but only until Christian IX took squiggly shit to the next level.
There was a desire for simplicity with Christian X - which caused those after him to calm the hell down a bit. The Crown Prince, bottom right, had his heart set on a return a simple design, it seems, but diplomatically nods his head to the squigglys.
