Digital tabloid printed on 90gsm bright paper

"We're using this newspaper to publicise the exhibition EGG ROLL PLAY by Mary Stephenson at Ackerman Studios in London. It was designed by Ruby Wright and folds out to create a poster. As we had three different designs done there's a collector feel about them. After posting on Instagram we had requests to hold them back so people could collect all three!

The process of designing the poster made us focus on what we wanted people to take away from the show. Mary's works are surreal, playful and humorous. We wanted people to take some of that fun and innovation home with them in poster form. It also helped us tie all the visual side together as we vinyled the front of the gallery in a similar style."

Weekend Arts newspaper

Weekend Arts from Studio O+A

Traditional broadsheet printed on 70gsm bright paper

"Studio O+A's newspaper celebrates the firm's commercial projects – something more fun than a press release and more creative than a promotional postcard.

Periodically, we send out original art created by O+A staff in response to O+A's workplace designs. The focus of this issue is O+A staffer Kristina Cho's layer cake (pictured above) baked as a tribute to our work on the new multi-floor McDonald's headquarters in Chicago's West Loop. We used a broadsheet because Kristina's cake deserved a sumptuous two-page spread!" Studio O+A

Perceptions illustration newspaper


Digital tabloid printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

"I study graphic design and my newspaper was my final work. The project was about body image. I wanted to keep a light-hearted theme so I chose to use illustrated images. I was really happy with the double spread of the women's bodies and the small quote at the bottom: 'Feeling beautiful has nothing to do with what you look like.'"Lauryn Coleman

Westminster fashion lookbook newspaper

Westminster Fashion Design A/W19 lookbook

Traditional broadsheet printed on 70gsm bright paper

"The University of Westminster's BA Fashion Design graduates held their first Paris showroom at the end of May, presenting their collections and final design portfolios.

Central to the presentation was our A/W19 lookbook broadsheet newspaper. It featured all the runway collections from London Fashion Week and was a big hit with all the designers and recruiters that attended the event (Balenciaga, FENTY, LVMH and more!)

It’s been fantastic to show our graduates collections in Paris and great that all the visitors could take away a newspaper featuring all of the runway show in such a large format."—Andrew Groves, Course Director for BA Fashion Design at the University of Westminster

The Daily Feed

Digital tabloid printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

"The Daily Feed is a 40-page newspaper that reflects the surreal, amusing and rapid dissemination of everyday news. Inside are reproductions of my Risograph prints inspired by Twitter headlines, with "articles" composed of users' tweets and comments.

The newspaper was part of my work for Glasgow School of Art’s 2019 degree show and was displayed on a newspaper stand, accompanied by the original Risograph prints tiled across the wall (pictured below).

I took inspiration from Simplicissimus, a weekly satirical journal that explored the political climate in Germany between 1896-1967. Their use of strong graphic illustration, bold colour and image-heavy layout really appealed to me." Edith Ault

"I'm a recent graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design. For my thesis, I spent my last semester looking at the American diner. I visited various locations in Providence, RI to experience the culture and learn about how it has evolved. The Greasy Spoon newspaper celebrates the diner and how it has influenced American culture – the recognizable food, unique characteristics and people who have been inspired by it." Ashley Min

"We created this newspaper to send to potential new stockists of our chocolate bars. Each paper was sent in a gift box (pictured below) with a business card, postcard and one of our chocolate bars. We sent them as surprises and we had a great reaction!

We love using Newspaper Club because the product is different to the "normal" catalogue we could have printed anywhere. It’s also easy to fold and lightweight to post, recyclable and has a great texture and feel to the paper." Creighton's Chocolaterie

Mach Matches newspaper tabloid salmon newsprint

Mach Matches

Traditional tabloid printed on 45gsm salmon

"Mach Matches was commissioned by Articulture Wales and Machynlleth Comedy Festival. The newspaper lists romantically available individuals but there's a twist: the Mach Matches are all chat bots! Festival visitors could text the match they fancied and enter into a fictional, text-based relationship with our chat bots.

I really enjoyed making the illustrations, which I created by scanning in Auguste Rodin sculptures and making digital montages in Photoshop. I thought the classical romance attached to these images created an antagonistic juxtaposition with the idea of fictional dating through the digital language of text messages.

The Mach Matches chat bots were very busy over the 3 day festival and we got some pretty inspired text messages – it turns out fictional flirting is a great way to add entertainment to an already hilarious comedy festival." —Caitlin Shepherd, designer

Metric Coffee zine newspaper

Metric Coffee

Digital mini printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

"We were invited by [espresso machine makers] La Marzocco for their exclusive residency in Seattle. The goal was to bring Metric Coffee in Chicago to Seattle in a pop-up fashion. Working with our neighbors Good Beer Hunting, we developed this little “zine” that would communicate the essence of Metric.

The newspaper acted as a menu for the residency but beyond that it’s covered in doodles depicting our block while also having short features written by the community we work with and serve from our café. Our newspaper allowed us to share our Chicago with a whole new community across the country in a unique way." Metric Coffee

jerusalem divided james seabright ISTD Student Assessment

Jerusalem Divided

Digital tabloid printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

"I'm a graphic designer about to graduate from Northumbria University. I specialise in typography and editorial design and recently became a member of the International Society for Typographic Designers (ISTD), earning a Merit in the ISTD Student Assessment.

For my assessment I created a publication exploring multiple points of view. I chose to tackle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and focus on the Old City of Jerusalem, developing a typographic narrative for the three religious voices that reside there. I printed my publication as a digital tabloid –I feel that the newspaper format helped to convey a truthful editorial reflection of the subject matter and presented different opinions in an honest, impartial manner."James Seabright
