NEWSPAPERS, PUBLICATIONS, CUSTOM TYPEFACES | 12 MAY 2015
The McClatchy Company publishes 29 daily newspapers across the US. Working with Garcia Media, they have spent the last year developing a unified design language that will bring together the print papers, mobile apps, and web editions with a more consistent overall look. We designed a set of typefaces that will help to bridge the gap between design consistency and individual character.
