City Journal

City is an academic journal committed to the critical analysis of urban life with an orientation towards radical change, based in the UK and led by an international editorial collective. After more than two decades of publication, the collective commissioned me to re-design the visual identity, masthead, and journal for its 2020 relaunch.

I delivered a hybrid and dichotomous wordmark whose primary and secondary forms (see front and back cover) reflect the journal’s cross- and inter-disciplinary pluralism, as well as the heterogeneity of urban spaces. The lean single-column template gives space for diverse voices and a mix of text, diagrams, and images, and serves readers equally in print and digital formats.
