Brief:  Explore the archives at Kingston School of Art. Produce a piece of communication that promotes the archive.   Outcome:  A highly personalised typeface merges the handwriting of Kingston University’s alumni with the University’s typeface.   Inspired by student identity cards unearthed in the Kingston archive,  I overlaid the handwritten script with the clean, neo-grosteque Helvetica Neue. This juxtaposed old and new, student and University. In order to celebrate the diversity of both Kingston Students and the work available in the archive, the promotional posters will showcase a series of different alumni’s handwriting such as Coca Court’s.
