TYPO #43 is now hot off the press!

Number 43, released in early April, focuses on the future of graphic design, featuring thesis projects created by recent graphic and product design graduates and reporting the results of an extensive poll about education that the magazine conducted among leading design and typography instructors.

TYPO is donning a new look for 2011: The beloved yet despised Helvetica font is replaced by Graphik, a sans serif that comes from the workshop of world-renowned typographer Christian Schwartz. Since the beginning of the year the magazine has also been posting design and typography news several times per week on its Facebook page and on Twitter. Come “like” us and follow us!


And there is more good news: Everyone who takes out a 2011 subscription will receive 10 credits for purchasing photographs and illustration at Pixmac. For more information, visit www.typo.cz/subscribe. Back issues of the magazine are also still available.

Number 43 opens with an overview of selected thesis projects created by recent graduates of art academies in the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia who took part in the Graduation Projects – Central European Review of Design competition co-organised by Typo (Czech Republic), 2+3D (Poland) and Designum (Slovakia) magazines.


This is followed by our Design education poll, in which well-known international design instructors answer questions about job opportunities for design graduates, the differences between academic theory and real-world practice, specialisations and their own motivations to teach design.


In the next section of the magazine you can read a short biography of a forgotten punch cutter of the Dutch Golden age, Nicolaes Briot. Entitled Notes from the archive: Twists of fate and the fame of Nicolaes Briot, the article was written by Feike de Jong. Martin Pecina’s essay Electronic reading: The future is now considers the current state of e-books and reading from the screen, with an emphasis on typographic quality – or the lack thereof.

The end section as always offers design and typography news briefs, when you can read about a workshop led by TypeTogether or Suitcase Type Foundry’s Type Specimen app for the iPad.
