Welcome to the new look representing St. Kilian’s German School
Our new logo was introduced in 2017 and is made up of two components: a graphic ‘K’ motif and the descriptor text.
The St. Kilian’s ‘K’ is inspired by Josef Albers’ Kombination Schrift alphabet; a modular lettering system based upon ten basic shapes derived from a circle and a square. This efficient typographic design was typical of the early 20th century work derived from the Bauhaus school in Germany.
This German design-influenced motif, combined with the descriptor text set in ‘Brandon Grotesque’, a German sans serif typeface, ensures that the logo is contemporary and accessible, yet rooted in the traditions of German design.
