Sociotype is a design-led type foundry from the minds of renowned London creative studio Socio.
Sociotype Journal is a new kind of type specimen and a platform for thoughts on arts, culture, and society. Each issue focuses on a single theme inspired by (and typeset in) a different type family designed by us.
Issue #1, The Gesture, will be available in January. We look at gestures of power and political influence, sign language poetry, the secret codes of the illuminati, street gangs and Easyjet flight attendants, NASA’s gestural VR programme of the 1990s, the cultural and historical significance of the raised fist, and more.
