Typographic Revolt

Typographic revolt

The folks at HypeForType approached graphic designer Ryan Atkinson to produce their first magazine, Typographic Revolt. The mag acts as a showcase for their typeface collection and is A2 sized with a twist. Instead of following the traditional convention, Ryan designed a quick read through A2 magazine which also doubles up as a set of 4 Exclusive Faces posters. Each page folds out to create a double sided poster perfect for your studio or home wall space. Typographic Revolt is printed as a limited litho run on 90gsm wood free paper, giving everything a premium newspaper feel which absorbs the inks to create a beautiful desaturated look and feel.

Typographic Revolt is available now through Amazon.
