Feed Your Head is a self-edited magazine about arts, design and pop culture. The aim is to highlight local artists and designers through different themes. Here is the very first issue, it is about fan art and focuses on Araknoce’s illustrations (you can find him on instagram, twitter and twitch). The magazine includes articles, anecdotes from different random people and an interview of the featured artist/designer. The magazine is written in French and is available on my ko-fi shop
I chose Nickel Gothic (by David Jonathan Ross) for the headline of the magazine because it’s bold and has something that reminds me of Akira and other works about neo-cities and geeky universes. Its large and wide letters are perfect for a title.
Victor Mono (by Rune Bjorneras) is used for the titling inside the magazine. Here I wanted a font that has a kind of handwritten style but not just that. I use Victor Mono a lot and I know well about its different styles and how the regular is drawn as a programming font and the italic is much more round and hanwritten. This was then the perfect match and it fits perfectly with Nickel Gothic on the front page!
Finally, Adelphe (by Eugénie Bidaut) – while writing a magazine, you will want to have a very legible and well-drawn typeface for your articles. I tried a lot of different fonts before settling my choice on Adelphe. This choice is based on several points: firstly, it’s a serif, in other words, perfect for long pieces of text; secondly it is an open source font, and I work mainly with them; finally it’s made by a woman and it has three sets of glyphs that allow for inclusive typography. In this case, some parts of the text use the Fructidor series, which combines the use of an alternative form of e and ligatures in feminine conjugations.
