Background

Inspired by apes and barrels, King Pong is a display font that’s heavy, blocky, yet cheerful.

Letterforms are brought to life through removal from a single square. Ascenders and descenders bring contrast and interest to the letterforms through a curved form cut at a 45 degree angle. King Pong works great for themes related to video games, technology, and music while the letterforms perform well in low-contrast environments and in very large formats “ such as posters.
