Islands Display

Issue #54 of DestinAsian magazine will boast a new display font on it's pages. TBA+D designed a bespoke typeface inspired by water and puffy clouds for the travel and lifestyle magazine's annual Islands Issue.


"I looked to the bare essentials surrounding a tropical island" explains TBA+D's Tom Brown, who used images of clouds and some rippled ocean waters photographed near his home in Port Moody, British Columbia, to collage into letter-forms. "No shortage of clouds near me, I had plenty of examples to photograph"




Look for the Islands Issue of DestinAsian on select newsstands in North America.
