Slanted started as a weblog, which had typography and graphic-design as its topic. Founded in 2004, it then grew into an important design portal and discussion forum in the German-speaking area.In 2005, the typography magazine Slanted was founded, the magazine is published quarterly and combines the sectors typography, lay-out, illustration and photography. It attends to the topics in great detail and more intensively than the blog did. Both blog and magazine encourage and call for a debate on these subjects as an experimental field. It is also about getting to know them, seeing them in a different light, and to reflect on them.
