Slanted is all about typography – a topic that is given far too little coverage
The magazine is supplemented by the blog on http://www.slanted.de/, which exists since 2004. This Internet platform provides daily updates on typography, design, illustration and photography, while the magazine goes into greater depth and immortalises the topics. Each issue focuses on a different topic. The look and layout of the magazine reflect the (specific) topic of each issue. Until now there had been published 7 issues with different topics: Issue 6, for instance, is dedicated to “Signs, Symbols, Ornaments”, issue 7 focuses on “Geometrics”. The first part of the magazine presents a variety of aspects including font labels and font design tools, shows illustrations of font names, and topically relevant song lyrics transformed into “typolyrics” using appropriate fonts. The second part of the magazine is general, including interviews, works, student projects and so on, while the third part of the magazine ties in to the blog.
