    Located at Athens’ central Syntagma square, Studio Kleisthenis was a photographic studio founded by Kleisthenis Daskalakos, photographer of a wide range of Greek and international celebrities from the 1950s to the 1980s.

    The family, which has inhereted the archive of the studio, does not have any information on the creation of the logo and the choice of the fonts, but they do preserve it and use it for the envelopes and the social media of the studio as a watermark.

    The font used for the word Κλεισθένης is Jackson (Mecanorma, 1971). For the Σ (σίγμα/sigma) , the latin S has been used. The Θ (θήτα/ theta), however, is originally designed.

    “Studio” is set in Linear (Letraset, 1969) using its lowercase letters. The big round dot on the i is a modification.
