|Services offered:||Corporate design, book and catalogue design, editorial design, packaging and product design, advertisement, exhibition design|
|Areas of operation:||Global|
In “Stencil. Type.” we look into stencil fonts and their modern applications to produce evidence that this type features special and often misjudjed aesthetics.
Slanted presents the innovative work of Gavillet & Rust and their fontlabel Optimo (Geneva), the large format paintings of Christopher Wool (New York), an impressive photo series of Francois Fleruy (Paris) and many more. The sections “Fontlabels, Fonts & Families”, “Fontnames Illustrated” and “Typolyrics” introduce contemporary fonts and designers from all over the world, followed by interviews with John Boardley, Kouga Hirano and Chip Kidd and an interesting type essay by Hannes von Döhren.
Furthermore Slanted Magazine introduces numerous stencil-works of professionals and students (Hauser, Schwarz, Mind Design, Ko Sliggers, Autobahn, etc.). The chapter introduction pages are decorated with Hubert Jocham’s headline-font “NeoParts S9”, exclusively created for this issue. Our readers can get this brand new typeface for free. As the previous issue #8, the cover is wrapped with a poster – the third one of a series of four. By end of the series, the aligned posters will create a sentence. “PORN” was the first word, followed then by “4” – “TYPE” is now the third part of the puzzle.
