Sociotype is a design-led type foundry from London-based creative studio Socio. We make finely crafted retail and custom fonts for print and digital media.

We know all about the challenges designers and their clients face, out in the noisy world. So we make type that stands out, reads beautifully and speaks with an unmistakable voice. Type that simply works.


Welcome to Issue #3 of Sociotype Journal, the type specimen for designers who like to read. The theme this time is Home. What makes a home? Or a home away from home? And how does power (or a lack of it) change the concept and the reality of what ‘home’ means?


This issue is a top-down and bottom-up tour of domesticity, from geometrically pristine masterplanned utopias, to an altogether more DIY approach: unplanned and off-grid, into the margins, into ruin, and into hiding in plain sight. It looks at Potemkin villages and replica cities, McMansions and sham castles, cube farms and hot desks; spite fences, coffin homes, hippie communes, suburban malls, Cold War-era radar stations and more.
