The font is called "Kingston". On the one hand, this term contains the English word for "king". On the other hand, the name also contains the suffix "ston", which comes from the English word "stone". Furthermore, the letter "e" was deliberately deleted to make the term more abstract.

The character of the font can be clearly described. The idea of the concept was to connect to a bygone era. The Kingston looks very old and radiates elegance. The Middle Ages and antiquity have made a big influence on the shape of the individual letters.

The journey took me through the winding streets of Graz. On the facade of a historic train station I saw an old sign. The pictured typography inspired me and based on this design I designed a new font.

But also the letters from the Roman alphabet played an significant role. They were consistently used as sources of inspiration.
