A new platform for thoughts on culture and society, that also happens to be a type specimen.

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

Issue #2 of Sociotype Journal, titled 'Makeshift', is an investigation of old things made new and new things made weird; a celebration of ingenuity on the hoof and ad hoc creativity under extraordinary circumstances. 

"Join us as we dig deep into the underground world of hobby tunnelling with the Mole Man of Hackney and go vert skating with Alvar Aalto. Come wander cowpaths of desire, shotcrete-encrusted mountainscapes, and the improvised landscapes of civil unrest. With Gorpcore upcycling, kintsugi-style vehicle repair, amateur conservation and serial art vandalism, we’ll look for life in the wreckage and new meaning amid the rubble." 

Issue #2 features twelve essays, seven image-led articles, and a twenty four page technical type specimen.
