IDEA NO. 314 : Emigre 1984-2005


Emigre is a graphic design and typography magazine based in northern California. Also known as a type foundry dedicated to the production and selling of digital fonts, its leading role in the field is known world wide, and the page design using its typefaces effectively is considered to be one of the main characteristics of the magazine.
Over the course of twenty one years, the people and situation that appeared on Emigre magazine, along with the typefaces that were used, have been constantly changing and migrating with the times. And it is this very open attitude that makes the course of Emigre magazine significant evidence, a consistent document of the present situation of graphic design and typography. It is our hope for this feature to become a small entrance for Emigre magazine to be kept being read from now on.
