David Siegel
The American designer David Siegel created the font in 1990. Tekton is based on the hand lettering of West Coast architect Frank Ching, who wrote out the text for his books. Tekton is ideal for 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 multiple master, released in 1993, has increased the usefulness of the design by adding weight and width axes and making the typeface more usable for signage and display work, as well as informal correspondence. Tekton is part of the Linotype Library. Tekton is a trademark of Adobe Systems Incorporated which may be registered in certain jurisdictions.
