The New York Times Magazine Custom Fonts（Type Design）
43 Custom fonts for The New York Times Magazine.
3 Categories with sub-categories: Sans, Slab & Serif – Each category of fonts have a different starting point, set of references and sub-categories. The starting point for the Serif font is the Stephenson Blake Garamond-inspired metal typeface Mazarin also known as ‘Astree’ from French foundry Deberny & Peignot and also the New York Times Magazine masthead, although this is a Black letter / Gothic type, its sharpness and contrast have translated into the design, most noticeably in the Display and Headline fonts. The Serif fonts designed for text matter share some of these features although proportions, contrast and details have been crafted anew to aid legibility in smaller point sizes. The Slab Serif fonts used for pull quotes and headlines are a continuation of the magazines existing Stymie font, in a re-invented condensed format with added typographic personality. The Sans Serif fonts are linked to the Industrial Grotesque types, with metal type specimen versions of Futura and Akzidenz fonts as loose models for inspiration, all reinterpreted and designed to suit the magazine.
