    Amalgam:

    Edited and designed by ​graphic designer and educator, Pouya Ahmadi, Amalgam is an ad hoc transdisciplinary journal that works at the intersection of typography, language, and the visual arts. Amalgam Op. I brings together a selection of writings, transcribed performances, and interviews with a diverse group of designers, linguists, and visual artists including: Alexandru Balgiu, Philip Burton, Dinamo (Johannes Breyer & Fabian Harb), Meghan Ferrill, Devin King, Alice J. Lee, Gerry Leonidas, Paul McNeil, Peter O’Leary, Rouzbeh Rashidi, David Jonathan Ross, and Gregory Vines. The highlights from this issue include: Paul McNeil’s note on the evolution of typography, text, and language; Typographische Monatsblätter cover design process by Gregory Vines; an extended interview with Dinamo discussing the thought process behind their work; and Norfolk typeface original drawings by Philip Burton and Armin Hofmann.

    For the journal’s typography, Ahmadi combines the enigmatic Nemesis by Baptiste Bernazeau with two reinterpretations of lesser known historical faces by Dinamo, the sans serif Diatype Programm (based on Gerstner-Programm) and the seriffed Pegasus (originally by Berthold Wolpe).
