Why is this magazine important?
Type has become an exciting niche and gateway to explore a variety of subjects within the graphic design industry. The written language is at the centre of all communication and can be combined with a limitless amount of topics and applications to make a serious mix of cool things to talk about and share on a global scale. This magazine aims to engage and bring together the type and design community with something new and exciting - to talk about young, inspiring designers highlighting an inclusive bank of designers to inspire the creatives masses.
By creating something physical our content is forced to be confronted by unique viewers (unlike the algorithms of social media). It’s easy for things to get washed over the sea of internet data, whereas with print there’s a more powerful statement to be made. With more and more things moving to digital spaces, we want to continue to create physical artefacts that document our design history and culture. Print is permanent. And that’s why we’re creating a printed magazine.
