L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui

Collaboration with the magazine Architecture d’Aujourd’hui (begun in 2014 with the design of issue no. 400) came about as a result of a decision by the editorial board to give a greater role to text and to create an improved balance between it and the images. A new grid was designed that would clarify the relationship between the two elements and make reading the magazine simpler and more intuitive. Consisting of four set thematic sections, a feature was made of the arrangement of the texts in both French and English. The characters chosen for the basic typographical pairing were Mercury and F Grotesk. To these was added a specific character used for the heading of the themed section and the cover, giving each issue of the magazine its own typographical color.
