From Elisabeth to Queen
A variable font created in honor of Belgium's first female head of state, displayed in compositions based on Belgian lace.

Princess Elisabeth will become Belgium's first female head of state. Since 1991, a woman can now also become head of state because of a new law.

The font has two variants, each referring to parts of her life. The first variant, shown on a pink background, refers to Elisabeth's personality as a young woman who likes to behave like other young woman.

On the other hand, you have the font that refers to Elisabeth as the future head of state. This font is more timeless and formal so it could last throughout her career and communicate clearly to the outside world. This font is displayed in black and white and carries messages of solidarity. According to Elisabeth, this is a theme that we need to pay more attention to and therefore create a better future.

Alongside the typeface, there is a throne of solidarity that cannot be sat on alone. The throne can only be used when you are with another person. It is a search for mutual trust and balance in order to make use of it.
