Our takeover of TYPEONE’s fifth issue brings branding insights to the vibrant type-led magazine
TYPEONE is a bi-annual magazine from the creators of Femme Type that fuses type mediums with mainstream topics such as culture, business, technology, innovation, global issues and more. In our opinion, it has quickly established itself as the best magazine for typography in the industry, both in its forward-thinking content and its ever-evolving design. That’s why when they invited us at The Brand Identity to be the Guest Editor of TYPEONE’s fifth issue – a first for the magazine – we jumped at the opportunity.
Fittingly, the theme of the issue is ‘Branding x Typography.’ Two undeniably interconnected topics that we know and love dearly. In our role as Guest Editor, we’ve curated 136 pages of editorial content that delve into the connections between branding and typography that haven’t been explored in great detail before, or maybe don’t get the attention they should, or simply aren’t fully understood.
For the cover design, we commissioned one of our favourite graphic designers of all time, Daan Rietbergen. He’s injected his reputably bold approach to typography onto the front and centre of the publication, drawing a completely custom ‘5’ for us.
