As newspapers change, so the meaning, placement and purpose of their mastheads change too. This archive of Indian newspaper nameplates is therefore a celebration of the beauty and communicative skill that goes into them, and a snapshot of the contemporary news media in the sub-continent – see how the odd editorial email address crops up alongside some pretty historic type treatments. The collection has been compiled by Pooja Saxena, a Bangalore-based type designer who previously worked in Apple’s font team and studied at Reading University’s world-leading Type Design and Graphic Communication school.

Pooja has one of those restless creative minds that is able to juggle many things at once, so alongside her commercial work she leads workshops and “typerventions,” speaks at conferences and works on projects like The Bharati Braille Converter and political resource The Ballot.

Head over to the dedicated Flickr site to see the collection of more than 100 nameplates. Here’s hoping she finds the time to keep adding to it!
