Peruse Emigre, a Magazine That Changed Graphic Design

Emigre, a digital type foundry based in Berkeley, California was founded in 1984, coinciding with the birth of the Macintosh computer, so the team, consisting of Rudy VanderLans and Zuzana Licko, were among the early adaptors to the new technology.

From 1984 until 2005 Emigre published the infamous Emigre magazine, a quarterly publication devoted to visual communication. Emigre created some of the very first digital layouts and typeface designs causing great shaking the graphic design community. Here’re some of the back issues worth studying.
