    Barnbrook:

    ‘Redesign of the Japanese magazine Kohkoku (the name means advertising in Japanese). The new editor wanted to discuss social issues, therefore the concept for the redesign was based on the socialist idea of red square. This involved changing the format, a new magazine banner and square typeface called Coma. The studio completed the cover and the first eight pages for each issue of this bi-monthly magazine.’

    As with other Barnbrook projects, Elephant Black Italic is used in an eclectic mix of new and old typefaces. These include the newly developed Coma, by Barnbrook’s Virus Fonts studio.
