Sociotype is a design-led type foundry from London-based creative studio Socio. We make finely crafted retail and custom fonts for print and digital media.

We know all about the challenges designers and their clients face, out in the noisy world. So we make type that stands out, reads beautifully and speaks with an unmistakable voice. Type that simply works.

Sociotype Journal is a new platform for thoughts on culture and society, that also happens to be a type specimen. Issue #1 is typeset in our very own serif superfamily, Gestura. Appropriately enough, our theme is “The Gesture”.

When words fail, our hands do the talking. Join us as we investigate raised fists, flicked Vs and power grips, VR mitts and cable knits with NASA, secret signs of the illuminati, street gangs and flight attendants, sign language poetry, greasy fingers, strap hangers, and discover the meaning of the word “thist”.

Issue #1 features ten essays, seven image-led articles, and a twenty eight page technical type specimen. Ten per cent of the profits from this issue will go to The Black Curriculum, a social enterprise dedicated to addressing the lack of Black British history in the UK Curriculum.
