Field is a free football paper which made its debut at the last 5 games of the English Premier League season, 2012/13. Distributed for free at every Premier League ground on each matchday, it is the brainchild of the publishing team behind the fanzine Spiel (which we also designed).

With a circulation of 50,000 we needed to design an identity that would have a broad appeal and a magazine layout that was accessible and clear. Coming from the same publishing house as Spiel meant that we had to mirror those same design values, but aimed at a more mainstream audience.

The Field logo is designed within a set of goalposts, and this approach is then followed through across every aspect of the brand and the magazine design: contents laid out like team formations; page margins based on pitch markings; and lots of other graphic devices lifted straight from the iconography associated with the game. The whole thing is designed with a clean and minimal restraint that is intended to reflect the intelligent and cultural content inside.

Vita Radium Suppositories (ca.1930)

Produced by the Home Products Company of Denver, Colorado, these suppositories were guaranteed to contain real radium - and probably did.   From the company’s brochure:

"Weak Discouraged Men!

Now Bubble Over with Joyous Vitality

Through the Use of

Glands and Radium”[x]

The Designer Après-Garde explore the world of copy culture that has come to dominate design. “It became a cliché to announce that “we live in a remix culture”,” said Lev Manovich in his 2002 Flash Generation. What used to be avant-garde for postmodernists, is orthodoxy today. Copying and remixing are now part of the everyday. Nevertheless, designers still claim fame within this domain. The Designer Après-Garde is the fictional story of two such designers.
In 2010, the mini-fiction was visually translated into a poster and yellow leaflets for display during Take Part To Ideas in Bologna, Italy, an open source exhibition about designer’s research on intellectual property curated by Melissa Destino.

Oh my god. Names blotted out to protect the innocent and so this moron who’s obviously copypasting this message to every blog in sight doesn’t get any free traffic on my dime. I’ll take the compliment, though.

Anonymous said: Ive got to say. I just went to the typography tag and it broke my heart. I remember going in the tag and actually finding typography and lettering and designs but now its just filled with quotes and posts from weheartit. This is not my beautiful house. This is not my beautiful wife. Letters and the alphabet were

Dear Melodramatic Friend,

I feel you, dogg. Are you searchingtypography” or are you in /tagged/typography? The latter is curated managed, like #design is. If you’re still thirsty, try the typeface tag, it’s usually better. Usually. Sometimes. Sometimes it’s just just people being holier-than-thou about Papyrus or Comic Sans. Your mileage may vary. 

Sincerely,
Your Humble Host, Who Will Never Get to Edit the Typography Tag Because This is a Sideblog

Spinto es una tipografía mexicana inspirada en los antiguos anuncios publicitarios italianos de los años 1890-1920. Como base principal se extrajeron rasgos de la fuente Bodoni, haciendo una fusión entre las terminaciones serif didonas con las terminaciones transicionales como Baskerville. Las gotas de algunas letras se acomodan empujando a las astas creando una característica especial. El alfabeto incluye minúsculas, mayúsculas, números y símbolos. La función principal de esta tipografía es de uso display en grandes formatos.

Spinto is a mexican typography inspired by the old Italian advertisements for the years 1890-1920. As principal base Bodoni font features were extracted, by merging old didones with transitional serif like Baskerville. The terminal of some letters are arranged pushing the stems creating a special feature. The alphabet includes lowercase, uppercase, numbers and symbols. The main function of this font is used in large-format display.
