Magazine Redesign - bodyboarding

Hi All,

Im new to this forum, so a quick hello!

I'm about to undertake a redesign of a well loved Australian bodyboarding magazine.

We are currently using Helvetica Neue as body copy, Corporate SQ for captions and Folio's.

I am looking to find a typeface that is contemporary, clean, and legible. Our core reader group is aged 15 - 25 with that age increasing over the last few years. The magazine is youth oriented, fun, exciting and has been at the top of the genre for just over 20 years.

In my opinion, serif fonts are the best for body copy, but i was wondering if there was a classy sans-serif font that would do the job nicely. the magazine still has to be relevant to the youth market, but i wish to add a touch of class and sophistication to the mag.

Anyone remember Line Magazine from the very early 2000's? It was put out by Tyler Brule (Of Wallpaper*) and only published 3-4 issues.

I'm looking for copies of it. I know this is a super obscure/rare request, but I figured someone might be a magazine collector on Typophile.

Hello all,
I am writing a small research for my Typography course in college, on the subject of "Font Pairing", and I am looking for some website where I could find some HQ scans of magazine spreads or other editorial work I could use as examples.
I got a few nice scans from magazines and books, but right now I am thinking about using the net to broaden my field of research (and to save some money for printing the thesis :)

Can anyone suggest any flickr group / blog / archive where I could find some interesting pictures?
This is what I found so far - in case someone else might find them useful.

The newly redesigned, by Marek Pistora, Czech magazine FONT invited José and Veronika to speak amongst other things about their beginnings, influences, approach to design and way of collaboration. The well designed four-page interview also shows some samples of our typefaces in use, such as in various newspapers and books.

Does anyone happen to know what typeface this is?


Were you/are you stranded abroad on account of the Icelandic volcanic eruptions?

I'm involved with a collaborative not for profit magazine project to be created by people who were stuck in a foreign land with too much time on their hands.

There will be photography and illustration but I post here in case anyone might be interested in submitting typographic material or accepting typographic assignments to help with features?

If you're interested, please send me a message letting me know where you were stuck, where you were trying to get to and what you're free to do. A link to some of your work would also be appreciated. We'll consider pretty much any styles.

Many thanks for taking the time to read this.


Darjeeling combines British Elegance and Indian Flavor. It is flared like Optima, with a scent of Bodoni. By layering “Regular” and “Ornaments” over each other you will create astounding pieces of colorful typography. Additionally there is “Regnaments” which combines the two other styles.

Darjeeling is great as a display font, but also perfectly legible at text sizes. Use the ornaments only to add spice to Your design.

Make sure to use applications supporting all these lavish OpenType features like small caps, various sets of figures, fractals and the 102 discretionary ligatures.

Darjeeling has been recently released at myfonts:

Hello, could someone please help me identify this font?

I at first thought they were the same family, but after looking at them side by side, at lease the S is different.

The Modern House family is used throughout the book in various weights, bold through light/ very light, and doesn't appear in italics.

The Make Magazine Headline font is used in stencil, but may have other weights and styles.

Dear Typophile members, the latest issue of TYPO is now hot off the press! Inside you will find an article about Jiří Rathouský from our series mapping out the lives and oeuvres of prominent 20th century Czech graphic designers, accompanies by an as yet unpublished final interview Rathouský gave shortly before he passed away in 2003.

Hi all

Just need help identifying this. It's the logo/masthead for a Belgian magazine on culture. All tips greatly appreciated!


can you please tell me what font the masthead for gymclassmagazine is?

Thought it was Franklin Gothic Demi Condensed, but the spur of the G is different

Much appreciated

Beautiful swashes on the "U", "M" and "A" letters! Note also the inktrap on that "M"!

Does anyone know?

Thank you!

Hello Typophiles,

Could anyone point me to any helpful resources on creating interactive PDFs in InDesign CS4? I've found a few tutorials, but I was wondering if there is a quality book/e-book written on the subject.


My first full typeface Badona has just been released at MyFonts and HypeForType. Here are the links:

Behance Presentation:

I'm waiting for your support.


I am interested in hearing your thoughts on who uses the grid the smartest and most interestingly. Is it a 6,7 or 12 column grid any extra info would be great. Some of the best I can think of are, Esquire, GQ, popular mechanics, GOOD, Monocle and Plastique.

Here are some samples from Anthem magazine's recent redesign

Hi All,

I'm working in tandem with two in-house designers on a news magazine redesign. The new nameplate/logotype is a heavily customized amalgamation of [Bad link] and Font Bureau's [Bad link] (think very wide and bold). The serif we've chosen is [Bad link] for big heads, and [Bad link] for body copy. We're also using [Bad link], a contemporary slab, for headlines, decks, etc.

Bree was chosen as main typeface for body and titles in Deco, an ethical and ecologically aware French interior magazine.

In most cases, the body text actually uses Bree's alternate characters to ensure best legibility.

It was designed by Ljubomir Djordjevic from the French design studio Commeunarbre.

I'm designing a magazine and I'd like some critique on the fonts used so far.
I'm using Gotham and Stag together I like them as heads and standfirsts but I don't think either are quite right for body copy. Would using a third font for body be overkill?

I want to use Omnes as headline font for a new South African Baby Magazine. Please can someone suggest what condensed / compressed font can be used along with Omnes for cover lines? We are thinking of using Corundum News also by Joshua Darden for the text font throughout.

Font for a tabloid


I am currently working on a magazine design.
It is a tabloid size business magazine.

Any suggestions on the font for the body text?

I was flipping through Eye Magazine the other day and really liked the sans used for the bold headlines. Anyone know what it is? THX
