The Typofiles #113: J. Crew Style Guide

Typofiles J Crew Style Guide

No matter how many books and magazines I have, I still look forward to receiving certain catalogs every month. Besides being a free source of inspiration, I feel like they have a pretty good pulse on current design and color trends. While not everything appeals to me clothing-wise, I love taking a peek inside J. Crew catalogs in part because their layouts are never fussy or overdone, they make their products the focal point by zooming in on stacks of colors and use mostly neutral backdrops to form a sense of consistency. High five to J. Crew for setting a consistent tone and keeping the layouts light, fun and on-point. Oh, and for using a yellow cover!
