A restrained and accessible typographic execution invites the audience to imbue the brand with their own personal perceptions and experiences. The logotype’s active composition conveys an engaging field of view but avoids prescribing a specific idea, instead addressing the audience as participants, not consumers. The Media and Journalism Fellowship brand decidedly reflects this idea of individual and collective investment.
Beginning in 1996, the Poynter Institute partnered with Tobias Frere-Jones at Font Bureau to create the Poynter series of typefaces. The Media and Journalism Fellowship brand identity uses these typefaces exclusively. New Media journalism via online social platforms has disrupted and evolved from traditional Old Media channels; this idea is alluded to by applying stark, bright blue brand elements over more restrained content to activate a clear juxtaposition.
