Sociotype Journal is a new platform for thoughts on culture and society, from London-based digital type foundry, Sociotype, and design studio, Socio. Each issue invites some interesting people to explore a single theme, inspired by (and typeset in) a particular type family from Sociotype. Sociotype believe type only really comes alive when it’s engaged with culture.

In this issue:

Sociotype Journal - Issue #3 (Home) 

Welcome to the third issue of Sociotype Journal, the specimen for anyone who likes to read while looking at type. Their theme this time round is Home. What makes a home? Or a home away from home? And how does power (or the lack of it) change the concept and the reality of what ‘home’ means?

Join Sociotype Journal for a top-down and bottom-up tour of domesticity, from geometrically pristine masterplanned utopias, to an altogether more DIY approach: unplanned and off-grid, into the margins, into ruin, and into hiding in plain sight.

They'll look at Potemkin villages and replica cities, McMansions and sham castles, cube farms and hot desks; spite fences, coffin homes, hippie communes, suburban malls, Cold War-era radar stations and more.

Sociotype Journal features no advertising.
