I love this stationery and packaging design for Inventory Magazine. It was designed by Inventory’s Art & Design Director Anthony Hooper. The combo of black, white, kraft and the serif typeface give it an elegant and crafted look.
Archive is a beautiful typeface designed by The Entente, that is now available through Colophon. What’s unique about it is a small indent on the top and bottom of each serif.
The font is available in nine cuts — Roman, Roman Italic, Semibold, Semibold Italic, Bold, Bold Italic, Extra Bold, Extra Bold Italic and Mono. The Standard version contains Latin-A support. The Pro version includes a full set of small caps (including accented small caps), discretional ligatures, additional typographic alternates and number styles as well as Central European, Cyrillic and Greek language support. Supplied in OpenType format.
Even though I’ve never done it, I love magazine design. Something about seeing a well-designed spread get’s my creative juices flowing. It’s unfortunate that the magazine industry is hurting because I’d hate to lose all the great creative.
Some of the best magazine designs I’ve seen are by Swiss graphic designer, Anouk Rehorek. His use of black and white color along with serif type is stunning and the way he integrates imagery really creates a perfect balance.
I’ve always been a fan on the wonderful Neutrface typeface. It’s simple, clean and classical and the geometry gives it a balanced feel that is pleasing. It’s damn sexy, especially in the light weights.
So when I saw that House Industries released a Slab version, I was all giddy. I’ve recently been obsessed with Slab and Serif faces so this was instance love.
Neutraface Slab comes in five display weights and four text weights, including italics, as well as small caps and seven figure styles. The complete set will cost you $599.00, which isn’t so bad considering the amount of the weights you get. I might have to add this to my collection.
