For the TSJ launch in 1992, we were charged with designing a nameplate that was coherent, balanced, and hollered “surf” from a respectable distance. Remember this was thirty years ago, when bookstores and newsstands were very much a commercial driver.

The large, serif “S” on each end split the difference between Neoclassicism and a lobby card from an era blockbuster. The logo worked on all fronts for the Journal and proved durable enough that we’re re-popping this throwback.
