Fonts in Use — Det Kongelige Teater

DKT-program-cover

Always worth the reading, Fonts in Use latest article is about the font DKT designed by Jonas Hecksher from e-Types. This font family is used in all the communication of the Royal Danish Theater in Copenhagen.

The specially designed typeface, DKT, has reference to the classical Egyptienne typefaces and spans from dogmatic and loud to elegant and refined. In its expression it has a humane element – small details are slightly tilted or off – creating personality, warmth and humour. By virtue of its different values, the font can span both very classical and very modern expressions. This way it captures the diversity of the theatre’s art forms and activities.
