Culture & Tradition

Editorial Design and Layout


Culture & Tradition is the annual publication of the Memorial University of Newfoundland Graduate Folklore Society. For nearly 30 years the journal has presented original research by graduate and undergraduate students with an emphasis on Canadian communities and cultures. 


I created a new wordmark featuring Caslon Graphique, an extra bold "fat face" version of the typeface Caslon, which I used throughout the journal to set the body text. Caslon Graphique is a more expressive, contemporary take on the classic Caslon and is balanced nicely by the bold ampersand which is set in F37 Bella whose curves and proportions eco that of the letterforms.


Recently the journal updated their editorial mandate and I redesigned the journal to reflect this new direction and appeal to a broader audience beyond the academic community by referencing layouts found in contemporary independent publications. We incorporated the work of visual artist Jerry Ropson into the design and content giving the journal a distinct edge in the field of academic publications. Moving forward Culture & Tradition is going to feature an artist who explores folklore and ethnography through their art practice. It is an opportunity to connect these complementary disciplines and provide new cultural connections and audiences for each.
