The typeface SwingKing is the work of the Danish illustrator Erik Sørensen. Through his long career in the pre-digital era he has made lots of air-brush illustrations, paintings and comic strips. He told me that he always had problems finding a typeface that felt right to him. So we talked about producing a useful typeface which wasn’t cartoonish, or handwritten, but more just like an illustrated font with all the charm and warmth of his always characteristic stroke drawings. My part of the work has been to digitalize it, polish it, making small improvements and asking for more icons.
