Every month, we put together a roundup to showcase all the different ways our creative customers use newspapers.

Lettering Lessons

After Mark Caneso had to cancel his in-person workshops because of the pandemic, he turned his lettering lessons into a mini newspaper.

“This booklet will leave you feeling confident to draw bigger and bolder and more beautiful letterforms than you ever dreamed you could,” says Mark, whose clients include Adobe, Adidas and Facebook. “People are loving the piece and printing digitally allows me to update my inventory as needed.” Printed on salmon newsprint.

Powerful Posters

In June, designer Amanda Jane Jones launched a poster project to raise funds for Black Lives Matter causes. Each digital tabloid poster showcases work by a Black artist, who also selects a charity to receive profits from the sale. 

This poster, the third in the series, features an image by Chicago-based visual artist Paul Octavious. It’s a portrait of his mother, Agatha, “who sees all the beautiful colors I’m made of,” he writes.

Money raised will be split between 2 organisations: Black Archivist, a project Paul founded to help put cameras into the hands of Black people, and the Okra Project, a collective that serves Black trans people. Poster available from Define Magazine.

The mini newspaper, designed by Megan Snyders, collects writing and images centred around 4  aspects of the body explored in their 2019/20 terms: Skin, Hair, The Body as a Whole and The Body as Parts.

“The idea of being able to connect through a tangible physical object feels especially relevant since the coronavirus lockdown,” says head tutor Jake Spicer. “We hope this publication inspires readers to think about new ways to view the body at a time where we must find connection with one another without contact.”

Parsing zine from Daniela Spector printed by Newspaper Club

Editor's Picks

“The original intention was to create an outlet for my unsolicited podcast or movie recommendations,” says photographer Daniela Spector about launching her newspaper, Parsing. “But it’s evolved into a space where I can explore themes I've been interested in more thoughtfully.” 

With 4 issues so far, recommendations have included the podcast Okay, Now Listen, “taking shelter in a doorway during a summer downpour” and Eric Rohmer’s 1967 film La Collectionneuse. 

“It's been fun to see how people interact with something that doesn't feel as precious as other types of print media,” she says of the mini newspaper format. “Some people curl it up when they're done or a baby gets ahold of it, while others have started collecting them and displaying them in interesting ways.”
