Tesseract in early use for the lastest issue of Wired Italia, a magazine about technology and lifestyle with art direction by Pitis e Associati.
Issue n. 91 (winter 2019/2020) is titled “Visioni 2020”. Wired asked twelve photographers to show how the world is changing. The prologue to the features is by Jeremy Rifkin. Japanese artist Hiroto Hikeuchi contributed the cover image.
Headlines are set in caps from Tesseract Display. Each of the features gets a different typographic treatment: Sliced words on sloping baselines for Preston Yarger’s “Post Acopalittico”, supersized caps interlaced with images for Brian Finke’s “Fenomeno Fortnite”, or letterforms of varying size hung on a line for Hiroto Hikeuchi’s “Cyber Funk”. The running heads at the bottom of the pages are set in Tesseract. The Text size of the typeface collection by Production Type is distinguished by a smaller x-height and a less pronounced stroke contrast.
Pitis e Associati paired Tesseract with an unidentified serif as well as Atlas Grotesk and the monospaced Atlas Typewriter (Commercial Type) for text. The business supplement in tabloid format is dedicated to the changes in the world of energy. Headings, infographics, and drop caps in this section use ITC Motter Corpus.
