Geo Epoche is a German magazine about history, published every two months as part of the GEO family by Gruner+Jahr.
Relaunched in 2018 and designed in-house by Tatjana Lorenz (art direction) and Eva Mitschke (layout), the magazine uses a combination of typefaces. While Bauer Bodoni and ITC Franklin/ITC Franklin Gothic take turns for display roles, the body copy is set in Garamond Premier. The palette is completed by Brandon Grotesque, which serves for informational texts, captions, intros, footnotes, and more.
Geo Epoche was awarded at this year’s International Creative Media Award (ICMA) with two Gold Medals (illustration) as well as one Silver (layout) and one Bronze (concept) Medal. The images show pages from two of the awarded features, “Satansweib” and “Der Seelenretter”. Both are included in No. 89, “The Inquisition”, which was the first issue following the relaunch.
