8 Faces Magazine

8 Faces is a limited edition typography magazine that has received much press for its one-off print runs, high-profile interviewees and contributors, high production values, and role as a catalyst for the recent explosion of self-published printed magazines.

The magazine itself centres around interviews with eight leading designers from the fields of print, web, illustration, and of course type design itself. In addition to the interview, we design beautiful spreads that showcase the interviewees’ answers to the question, ‘if you could use just eight typefaces, which would you choose?’

8 Faces is written and designed across the globe, and produced, printed, and distributed in Bristol, England.
