Australian artist David McLeod creates surreal digital illustrations for brands like Nike, IBM, Dropbox and MAC Cosmetics. His agency, MUCH Creative www.muchpresents.com, created this mini newspaper as a unique, lightweight alternative to the standard artist portfolio. “We wanted something to showcase our artist’s work that could also be left behind, shared and collected,” says MUCH founder Matthew LeBaron. “Our clients LOVE the newspaper format—the details are sharp, the colors pop and the textures shine through every image.”

This newspaper catalogue—which includes a playlist compiled by Jarvis Cocker—was designed by Craig Sinnamon. “I was really keen to add gradiated purple punctuation,” he says. “This was my reference to Prince’s love of symbols—it took me a day to colour every piece of punctuation in all the texts. I was aware of the risk of colour misregistration, but I felt the risk was worth taking. We were not disappointed.”
