Zine and Copywrtiting 

Publication and Print Design

BACKGROUND

This project consists of a series of publications encouraging young people to get involved in protest and politics. The publications took the form of risograph printed zines, stickers and posters - highlighting the DIY elements of underground publishing methods of the 1960s and 1970s.

VISUAL REFERENCE

 

Type and colour choices were made inspired by design from the 60s, activism and protest work - referencing punk and psychedelic movements. The poster designs visually reflect ephemera from the protest explored within the issue - issue 1 garnering inspiration from the Chinese almanac and issue 2 from hand-printed Atelier Populaire posters from 1968.

COMPETITIONS

 

This project was a winner (YAY) of and featured in the Fresh Meet Nationwide Degree Show.
