Vinyl custom font Exhibit

Vinyl custom font

Allan Peters’s font for ESPN The Magazine mimics the grooves on a vinyl record.

Allan Peters recently had the plea­sure of design­ing a custom font for ESPN The Magazine's Music Issue. The result­ing type­face, which was inspired by the grooves on a vinyl record, is appropriately named Vinyl. The let­ter­forms were used through­out the issue in head­lines, ini­tial caps and full page illus­tra­tions. "ESPN was a dream to work with," said Peters. "There were very few revisions, and I was able to complete the project in about two weeks total because of tight deadlines."
