The Sociotype Journal serves as a space for reflections on societal and cultural issues, while also showcasing various typefaces.
The editorial team contends that typography should not just be about aesthetics but should ignite dialogues and propagate fresh perspectives. So, instead of using the typical pangrams or catchy placeholder text to present type samples, they introduced the Sociotype Journal. This publication goes beyond being just a type specimen.
Every edition delves into a unique topic, using a specific type family from Sociotype as its muse. The editors emphasize that typography truly resonates when it intertwines with cultural narratives. Hence, most of their contributors hail from domains other than type design. While typography is their foundational element, the Journal prioritizes the stories they weave using it. Everything else is open to interpretation.
