The Thinking allowed masthead is set in Sophia and Skia, using webfont technology. These types were both designed by Matthew Carter, who writes:
Sophia was inspired by letters cut and written during the century or two that followed the fall of Rome. Classical orthodoxy came under the influence of foreign cultures; the alphabet, in flux, mixed Greek and uncial with its Roman forms. This period strikes me as rather like our own – cosmopolitan, receptive, diverse.
The text of the pages is set in Verdana, which was also designed by Matthew Carter, with the headings in Skia.
