Vanity Fair magazine has debuted a new look alongside its September 2018 issue, which features an elegant new design and a weightier masthead.
For starters, the publication commissioned foundry Commercial Type to refresh its logo, which was previously also the work of the same agency. The wordmark now has more “meat” on its bones, and sports thicker descenders with an ironed-out ‘R’.
Inside, the magazine has added more visual tension to its pages by shifting its content into defined grids.
The cover itself appears to be a throwback to the past, though it’s unclear if the publication will retain this retro aesthetic in its future issues.
The September edition, which is fronted by actress Michelle Williams, is now available on newsstands. Preview the overhaul below.
Our September issue, featuring @amandafortini’s wonderful profile of Michelle Williams, photographed by @collierschorrstudio, styled by @samiranasr, and debuting our new design and ever-so-slightly revamped logo (hint: look at the R) led by @yeschrisdixon. There is so much good stuff in this issue, from cover to Proust Questionnaire, and I hope you will love it.
