Typefaces Get Political With Left and Right-Wing Fonts
Design studio Mucho used the same skeleton to create a serif typeface for conservative publications and a sans serif one for liberal ones
For one design firm, political reporting isn’t the only place in a newspaper that can comment on the two-party divide anymore. Mucho, which has offices located across Europe and the United States, recently created two political typefaces: the left-leaning Bulo and the conservative Trola as fonts for either end of the political spectrum.
While Mucho designer Marc Torrell started with a common skeleton, he gave Bulo rounded edges and a bulky feel to distinguish it from Trola’s more traditional, serif look.
