ACT LOCALLY ZINE

 

Combining the strict style of newsprint and mainstream media with the handmade, loud style of protest signs to create a zine sharing voices of writers speaking on the theme of equality.

 

This zine was designed for Creative Dundee, for use at their Act Locally event. After demand, a second, altered issue was published and given out at their popular Pecha Kucha evening.

 

 

 

Hand painted lettering accented the zine throughout.

BLAIR ATHOLL WATERMILL ZINE

 

A zine produced in conjunction with Blair Atholl Watermill and Out of The Blueprint, to tell visitors to the mill more about the oatmeal and grains that the bakers work with there to make their famous bread.

 

As lead designer and photographer, I took written content by the mill and created an 8 page zine, to be risograph printed in Edinburgh.
