Notes on the Type

Field & Stream Jubilat

This is something of an ongoing project. Art Director Neil Jamieson really liked Jubilat, but wanted a slab with square terminals. Dropping the contrasts required by ball terminals required that we take down the contrast generally, which is especially nice at small sizes, and makes for a much stronger match for the content. Only a handful of characters changed here, but the details make all the difference.

Out Magazine

In its latest incarnation, creative director David Gray and his team have maintained Out’s sexy, intelligent voice. We supplied pre-release versions of Jubilat for this redesign, which is complemented by Freight and Mario Feliciano’s Rongel in text.

Tatler Asia: Ten Simultaneous Redesigns

The Tatler Asia project was a milestone in our studio: we had never before provided all of the typefaces used in a redesign. In this case, we made up for lost time, ultimately contributing to ten palettes for the regional titles in Hong Kong, Beijing, Korea, Singapore, Shanghai, The Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Macau.

Working closely with Maryjane Fahey and Mariana Ochs, we provided six font families, including two new exclusive series, each with its own approach to fine-tuning. Corundum News’s shared-width grades offer superior text on a variety of papers and presses. Corundum Display features two optical sizes for grand display plus a version for decks and knockouts.

The premiere issue of Tatler Hong Kong shown here uses Freight Sans, Jubilat, Omnes, Corundum Text, Corundum Display, and Corundum News.

WHAT IS A TESTING FONT?

It’s a way to try out a font for free. Testing font licenses are for a fully functional version of the complete font family. The word “testing” is in the file name, and usage is restricted.

AM I PERMITTED TO SHARE DRAFTS MADE WITH TESTING FONTS?

You can share files with members of the design and approval team (your supervisor, the client) during the testing process. They must be informed of the testing font restrictions.

WHAT CAN’T I DO WITH TESTING FONTS?

The primary limitation is that testing fonts are not permitted to be used in any manner that is seen outside of the design and approval team. You can’t publish or publicize materials containing the fonts in any way, including via static imagery or in “teaser” posts. This includes internal announcements or communications.
