The Parkinson display family was originally designed during the mid-seventies by Jim Parkinson for Roger Black at a growing Rock & Roll magazine. Jim sees it as “a combination between the original logo by San Francisco poster artist Rick Griffin & ATF Jenson,” remembering it fondly as “a sort of Nicholas Jenson on acid.” Growing success of the series followed the rise of the magazine, with widths and weights being added year after year.
