Commented on Tuesday, 11 October 2011 - 2:24am

Thanks for the suggestions.

I really like Graphik, but it lacks a condensed variation for this purpose. Roxy seems a bit too old school for me. I've been thinking about Antenna, Flama Semi Condensed and Galaxie Polaris regula and condensed,...

Hey again. Thanks for some more good suggestions.

The free UK magazine Shortlist is pretty much only using Benton Sans from Font Bureau.

As Joshua said I received a new version, and it works like a charm. Thanks. My magazine is looking so much better today!

For the record all other fonts were "behaving all right" and the format was TrueType. The new version I received is also...

Soho - Versatile slab serif
Commented on Saturday, 11 August 2007 - 9:57am

I browsed through a copy of the British GQ yesterday and just wanted to say that it seems like they're the first big magazine to have picked up Soho. They stopped using Gridnik completely and a lot of text is now set in different weights of Soho. I...
