    Sucre Paper is a print-only independent publication from Copenhagen. The theme of issue #5 is “Anthropology” and features a selection of talented artists: Juliette Abitbol, Chiara Zonca, Nadia Ryder, Charlotte Robin (exclusive editorial), Ayo Akinsete, Benjamin Ewing, Arianna Lago, Aude Le Barbey (exclusive content), Pauline Caranton (exclusive editorial).

    The body typeface is Sabon. It’s paired with Effra for headings. The magazine logo is custom. I have chosen Sabon as it goes well with a classic format of a newspaper, as historically it has been made for both typesetting techniques to begin with, and is easily usable in the digital realms. I also personally find the italics of it very neat and used them in text to emphasize a word/phrase or mark the interviewer. For the headline font the choice fell on Effra because I wanted a grotesque font that is more approachable, as the whole newspaper/magazine has a soft/delicate tone to it. Since Effra has a humanist touch to it and more softer, ronder shapes, it didn’t overwhelm the page when being used on a greater scale.
