Epitaph for Black Magus magazine
I was approached last year by the good people at Black Magus (don’t Google it, it doesn’t exist yet) to create a masthead for them and this was the result:
The typeface was inspired by a series of pagan symbols – ‘magus’ means a sorcerer or magician so I was looking into black magic and imagery surrounding that when I came across these interesting looking icons:
It’s something I’m going to look at more and, for fun, I decided to build out an alphabet using the grid I developed for the masthead. The result is Epitaph, and I think it’s kind of fun. Waiting to find out if they’d like to use it as a headline font for the magazine but if not I’ll make it available somehow. Hope you like.
