Primago TypefacePrimago is a custom typeface modification, developed specifically for the 9th issue of Protocol, focusing on the topic of “Fehler” (german for error/mistake). Based on Imago, a typeface by Günter Gerhard Lange released in 1982, the overshoot on the round glyphs was reversed. Generally, all typefaces feature an overhang to counteract the optical illusion of the round letters being smaller or shorter. This modification plays with the idea of intentionally exaggerating an optical characteristic, considered to be false or wrong, and implementing it as a stylistic concept. Similar to the magazine, this approach attempts to offer a more practical perspective on failures/flaws. Primago was used in three cuts, regular, italic and bold.
