Is there any better typeface for Ping Pong Meatballs?
I can’t think of one!
Mecanorma maintained an impressive network of distributors all over the world. The Graphic Book No. 14 from 1988 lists 71 addresses in 64 countries. Their partner in Singapore was Kingsley Art Centre Pte Ltd on 68 Orchard Road 03–36.
WOW. Love this. I’ve been documenting oddball signage in Singapore but don’t live near Siglap. Definitely going to try and take this one soon before it gets replaced.
I’m not sure Kingsley Art Centre still exists. It’s definitely no longer at 68 Orchard Road as the entire plot got redeveloped. (It’s now a mall, and was an older mall previously).
as you surely found out yourself, Kingsley Art Centre is later listed on 1 Coleman Street, #4–51, The Adelphi, with “status: dissolved”. Another directory mentions January 1983 as the date of incorporation / registration. It’s probably irrelevant anyway: There are many ways how a Mecanorma typeface could have ended up in the hands of the sign maker / logo designer.
