Uno–Due is a yearly publication on football and culture. Football (soccer) is an essential element of global culture, a sport that moves millions of people on a daily basis. Using the ‘Beautiful Game’ as a springboard, Uno-Due delves into its reverberations on society and culture through human stories that go beyond the field, but are always connected to it.
The third volume, called “It’s Personal”, features an entirely redesigned identity and layout: the grid and typographic systems play off the idea of a one-two (referenced in the publication title), using a combination of a single Regular weight of a sans – Unica 77 – and a serif – Bradford – which are both available from Lineto. They are used interchangeably for display and text. This simplicity in the typographic palette is built with legibility first in mind, and gives room to playful interpretations of each article in the article openers.
The layouts of the openers play with typographic expression, capturing the subject matter through form and composition, activating the kinetic energy of the sport in typographic form. The idea of one/two is also used to structure the page, most visible within the openers, which feature color harmonies in blocks arranged in twos (either half a spread or half a page). The grid itself is built in ½ units as well, to lend a typographic rhythm to the entirety of the publication.
