    Production Type’s Proto Collection in use for Fretboard Journal, a quarterly print magazine for instrument lovers. Design director André Mora recently refreshed the typographic palette. Starting with issue No. 40, he added a number of Proto fonts to the mix.

    While the magazine logo, the subheads, and all body copy are still set in various optical sizes from John Downer’s Paperback, the opening spreads now feature members of Jean-Baptiste Levée’s exploration into early grots and egyptians. In addition to Proto Grotesk and Proto Slab, Mora makes skilled and varied use of the Mono and Slab Condensed styles, too. These appeared in Fretboard Journal already prior to their official release in 2019. The palette is completed by Evert Bloemsma’s FF Balance which is used for captions and other small print.
