Produkt debuts in Le Matin Dimanche and Femina, redesigned by Ariel Cepeda

UNRELEASED, MAGAZINES, NEWSPAPERS, PUBLICATIONS | 21 OCTOBER 2014

Ariel Cepeda has redesigned Le Dimanche Matin, the Sunday edition of the Lausanne-based French language Daily Le Dimanche, serving the Vaud region. Headline typography is in Kai Bernau's Lyon Display and Produkt, a slab serif companion to Graphik designed by Berton Hasebe with Christian Schwartz, slated for release in November 2014. Text is in Bernau's Lyon Text, with Graphik playing a supporting role in image captions, info graphics, maps, and other informational typography.

Cepeda has also redesigned the weekly women's magazine Femina, making bold use of Hasebe's Platform and Paul Barnes's complete Austin collection, with Austin Text for text and Austin and Austin Hairline for serif display. Produkt rounds out the type palette here as well, with the middle weights used for sidebars, the boldest weights used for section headers, coverlines, and page furniture, and the prettier light weights used for elegant display typography.
