A DIY Revolution

Sheffield Hallam University


Zine and Copywrtiting 

Publication and Print Design


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.



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.



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