IDP is the new formula of a magazine formerly called IDPURE created around 15 years ago, which focused on graphic design and typography (the publication became a reference and was founded by subscriptions).
IDP continues in the same track, only expanding the scope into topics related to visual culture and media studies. It’s a print publication and the editorial board aims to become peer reviewed in the future.
The publications include essays, stories, and interviews with Jim Blinn, Susan Kare, Suzanne Treister, April Greiman, and Lisa Messeri, among others.
Nirvana demonstrates its design qualities for headlines and posters design and matches well with both serif and sans-serif text fonts.
Confederation, the sans-serif typeface in use, is still unpublished and contains many OpenType features designed specifically for the publication (e.g. figures and section pictograms).
