About: ‘Condensed' was a member-orientated magazine produced by the International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD). As part of an initiative to offer a wider range of member-only benefits and resources, the publication was offered exclusively to ISTD members. Condensed provided members with the opportunity to submit material and air their views, acting as a forum for debate about matters typographic from professional and educational viewpoints, reflecting what ISTD members themselves feel is most relevant.
