Road Grays is a new independent print magazine about baseball, focused on the human stories behind the game. We aim to publish a fresh magazine twice a year.
We’ll be telling original nonfiction stories from the world of baseball — from the sandlot to the majors, from the game’s early history to the present day. There are plenty of other places to turn for the latest news on stars, stats, and up-to-the-minute analysis. Instead, we focus on the human stories behind the game, what it means to us as fans, and how it intersects with society and culture. – Roadgraysmag.com
The nameplate is set in DJR’s Roslindale Condensed. The typographic palette is meant to provide a subtle, almost subliminal reference to American print from the era of the game’s early heyday — while staying far away from the faux-vintage pastiche common to baseball-related design. Throughout the magazine, Anchor and Damien Display are used for headlines, paired with Malabar and Aspen for all other typography.
