Sociotype Journal Issue One: The Gesture
From London-based creative studio Socio and their type foundry Sociotype, the Journal is a platform for thoughts on culture and society, which also happens to be a type specimen. Issue One is typeset in their very own serif superfamily Gestura.
Appropriately, the theme of Issue One is 'The Gesture' – inspired by the importance our hands play in conversation, explanation and communication. It features ten essays and seven image-led articles, covering discourse from the secret signals of Easyjet’s flight attendants and David Shrigley’s sculptural thumbs, to Churchill’s V’s and NASA’s VR mittens, as well as a 28-page technical type specimen.
