Vogue Typeface Design and Poster Series
Vogue is an oblique typeface with didone characteristics. It is predominately oblique because all of the letters are slanted to the right, however they are not narrow enough to be considered italic. Vogue took inspiration from didone fonts such as Didot in the sense that it has a high-contrast between thicks and thins, however unlike Didot, the thicks and thins have an oblique stress rather than a vertical stress. The typeface was designed with the intention of combining rigid geometric edges with elegant and organic curves, to give an elevated sense of an elegance, sophistication, and class without being overly ornamental. Consequently, vogue can be used as a display font in publication works such as fashion magazines or posters. Its name, “vogue”, refers not only to the iconic magazine it was named after, but also to define the typeface as being chic, trendy, and somewhat ephemeral. While it was designed with the intended use of being a display typeface, it is still legible in small points and can be used as body text.
