“There has been an explosion of typefaces and new foundries in recent years and the public awareness of typography has never been higher. Why is this? Who is behind this new generation of young type foundries? Who is the market for all of these new designs? TYPE magazine aims to answer these questions and a whole lot more.”

TYPE is a new quarterly print magazine and website by Doug Wilson and Roger Black.

 

I am incredibly excited about this new publication which promises to focus on the “Who?” and “Why?” of type and design and not just the “what?” The publication exists to inform and delight our community in accessible and inclusive language, pitched at all people who love fonts, typography, calligraphy, lettering, sign painting—letterforms of all kinds.

The publication focuses on telling the stories of the people behind the letterforms. Exploring both the future of typography and it's legacy. As well as current trends, and best practices.
