Conveyor Issue 6, Alchemy
Responding to the theme of alchemy, we commissioned Dinamo to develop a typeface that would undergo an alchemical-inspired transformation. The result is Conveyor Favorit, which evolves in four stages—referencing the four stages of the magnum opus, an alchemical process for producing the philosopher’s stone (a substance believed by alchemists to turn base metals into gold and thought to be the essence of perfection). Further inspired by alchemical symbology, we also worked with Dinamo to create a series of glyphs, each paired with a different article in the issue. To contrast this typography, the rest of the issue’s design remains understated, allowing photography to come to the fore while creating a sense of balance and centeredness—a nod to the alchemical fascination with perfection.
Nice write up of the issue at MagCulture.
