The Economist: Design Study

Typography Assignment with Abbey Carr / Fall 2018

For this project we were assigned to research the typographic/information system of a publication. Then, display the necessary information in various formats across a series of broadsheets. The collected research documented and designed on the broadsheets will serve as a guide to what it takes to make this publication. We chose The Economist, a weekly newspaper magazine covering a variety of topics.
