Kitten is a low-stakes digital zine where artists of all disciplines respond to a one-word brief. Submissions are curated by Catherine Saint Siena, a writer and comedian with a passion to expand her circle and give others the opportunity to share their work.
Pairing a custom typeface with a sharp wordmark, we create a format that is as pointed as it is flexible. To capture the intent behind the brief, we use harsh lines to describe a soft word, keeping things open to interpretation.
From a napkin sketch to the final mark:
Kitten Courier is an alternate to a classic typeface commonly used in manuscripts and screenwriting. By sharpening the edges of each serif, this primarily analog typeface creates endless variations within a new medium.
A simple six-column grid that compliments the wordmark and supports the medium it lives within.
