Typefaces used in editorial design typically call attention to themselves, but they should not appear so individual that they overpower the message of the text. The selections that you make will become the voice of your publication: this is your opportunity to be unique.

When it comes to editorial design and publishing, design work is usually done on a tight deadline. Your publication’s designers probably work in a larger layout team. Everyone on board needs to be able to make do with the typefaces they have at hand, so be sure to make selections that will provide them versatility, right off the bat. Larger families with many weights and widths are a good start. If you don’t want to pick a superfamily, consider serif and sans serif typefaces that can combine well together on the same page.

In this area of graphic design, designers have the freedom to pick type that is a little more elegant than in many other applications. Remember what makes a typeface appear classic – this could be a great time to look through selections with ‘low’ x-heights, especially if your page layout has room for text with long ascenders and descenders. There are many different kinds of serifs, too. Take the opportunity to pick one whose form matches your message, be it elegant, sharp or soft.
