Sociotype Journal Two: celebrating creativity and resourcefulness in extraordinary circumstances
Socio, a creative studio based in London, along with their type foundry Sociotype, have created a platform called the Journal for discussions on culture and society. Interestingly, it also doubles as a type specimen. The second issue, titled Makeshift, focuses on the theme of transforming old into new, celebrating resourcefulness and improvisation in extraordinary circumstances. The issue uses Rework, a workhorse sans serif type family from Sociotype themselves.
Issue Two contains a technical type specimen spanning twenty-four pages, seven articles with images, and twelve essays that delve into a range of topics such as the subterranean world of hobby tunnelling, unconventional pathways of desire, rugged mountain landscapes encrusted in shotcrete, and the haphazard environments of civil unrest. It also explores Gorpcore upcycling, vehicle repairs inspired by the kintsugi technique, amateur conservation and serial art vandalism.
