In each issue the international newspaper designer Rolf Rehe recommends three typefaces which are appropriate for application in newspaper design. To give the Design Journal’s readers the possibility of judging the qualities of the typefaces themselves, the whole magazine is set in the recommended typefaces.
In the current issue (No. 112) Acorde is used as a secondary typeface for text as well as for headlines and gives proof of its wide applicability in various sizes. »It combines cool, geometric letter elements with the warmth of humanist sans forms. This results in a friendly yet assertive appearance«, states Rolf Rehe.Cover of the summer issue of SND’s Design Journal entirely set in Acorde.
