Inside: the recorder
Ooof! Issue no.5 of the beautiful Monotype Recorder is here and it has definitely put a spring in our Autumn. So much to get your type teeth into here, from a back-to-basics look at the use of type in brand identity creation, to an investigation into how feminist groups have co-opted graphic design in order to express themselves. There is a focus on type design in the ever changing world of virtual and augmented reality, a catch up with Australian graphic designer and typographic nut Gemma O'Brien and a look at the truly boundary-pushing album sleeves and poster work of David Rudnick!
'Exploring type's role in the wider cultural context' is the credo of The Recorder, and it is one it sticks to well. It also looks damned good while doing it!
It's been a lime-lit 12 months for iconic female graphic designer Paula Scher - a Netflix documentary, a beautiful Unit Editions monograph and now a feature in the typoholics favourite read. Inside Paula picks some of her favourite projects in a type mixtape that leaves you in no doubt of her place at the head of the graphic design table.
