For their recent redesign, Departures choose the whole compliment of Neutraface (the original, No. 2, and Slab) to update the magazine’s look. Faced with the challenge of getting DEPARTURES to look just right for the masthead, they asked us to draw a customized masthead. Some adjustments to letterforms, several rounds of re-spacing, and a custom logo typeface later and it holds together quite nicely.
Don’t have a Black Amex and thus no subscription to Departures? Just need a quick headline in Neutraface Inline or Neutraface Thin and the regular ‘ole MasterCharge can’t stretch to cover the whole family? Check them out on Photo-Lettering to get just the couple of words you need.
