About this font family
Based on the hand lettering of West Coast architect Frank Ching, who wrote out the text for his books, Tekton Regular is an Adobe Originals typeface designed by David Siegel in 1989.
Tekton Bold was designed by Adobe Type Staff’s Jim Wasco and added to the package in 1990.
Use Tekton in architectural drawing/design software to match the feel of the type with the designer’s plans, or to give the page an architectural or informal handwritten flavor. Tekton is useful for headlines and display work, as well as informal notices and correspondence.
