TYPEONE Magazine

Preorder Campaign Launch of TYPEONE Magazine, our New Biannual Publication

2020 has been a total whirlwind of upheaval and uncertainty, but if one thing is for sure, it’s that the incredible design community have continued to make it visually and conceptually breathtaking. From the influx in experimental serifs to the development of stunning new type systems, a ton of incredible, unique branding and identity projects to fun lockdown experiments; we’ve been loving the vast and varied creativity we’ve been seeing in design… And so, we’re so stoked to finally introduce you guys to our brand new magazine, TYPEONE.

Coming November 2020 and available for preorder now, this bi-annual gloss magazine – printed by Pressision Creative Print & Finishers and published by People of Print (In Perpetuum) – fuses type with some of the most important and current topics of today: business, technology, innovation, global and social issues, graphic design, 3D, animation and so many more… With these creative explorations led by our TYPE01 team and network of freelancers, TYPEONE Magazine spotlights a broad, inclusive scope of global talent to showcase the projects, campaigns and global-led initiatives emerging from the next generation of talented creatives all over the world.

Our debut issue, Issue 01, centres around type design through the lens of global issues in 2020 and excavates how type – and design as a whole – has played its part in sharing messages, amplifying voices and pushing for global change. Split into sections of Culture & Innovation / Interviews / Insights / Spotlights, we’ve been sourcing the most exciting shifts in design this year. We’ve also teamed up with Design Calendar to bring you a carefully curated selection of useful, engaging and up to date creative events and resources in our first issue, and we’ve got to say, we’re so incredibly excited to share this all with you…
