Since we launched the new issue of Printed Pages a number of people have been in touch to ask what font we’ve been using on the promotional materials surrounding the mag – the lovely serif that’s been featured on our banner ads and Instagram. Rather than just get back to those people we thought it would be better to let everyone know, and blow the trumpet for the designer who created it too.
The font we’ve been using is called Fugue and is the product of digital type designer Radim Peško. Originally designed back in 2008 taking inspiration from type designer Paul Renner, it marked the tenth anniversary of the Werkplaats Typografie. Fugue was initially only available in 12pt and one weight, but now you can get hold of it in Regular, Italic, Monospace and Headline in all the point sizes you can dream of. Radim’s also got a heap of other great fonts on his site that I’d recommend checking out. Consider your thirst for type slaked.
