Assignment 4: Research – magazine typefaces

I began this research assignment by playing around with finding other aspects of type faces, such as ligatures, I used Illustrator and chose five font families to work with. I chose a mix of Sans serif, serif and script fonts, see the picture below:

I then began looking through magazines I had to take clippings for researching fonts using identifont.com. I grouped these in my sketchbook as well as making a record of the outcome of the search and any websites which held the license to the font family. Below I’ve listed my findings by Magazine name and then the heading typeface followed by the typeface used for the body of the text.
