Austin News Collection

Designed for Jon Hill’s redesign of the Daily Telegraph in 2015, Austin News is a collection of four closely related typefaces for headlines and text in both print and screen use. Adapted from the successful Austin families, originally designed for magazines, Austin News has compact ascenders and descenders for tight leading: classic news proportions. Loosely based on the 18th century typefaces cut by Richard Austin for the publisher John Bell, they encapsulate an elegant yet easy Anglo charm, with the clean finish appropriate to contemporary news media.
