10 newspapers (very) hot off the press in July

Newspaper Club print roundup: 10 newspapers hot off the press in July 2022

Every month, we put together a roundup to show all the exciting ways our creative customers use newspapers — and the July heatwave gave a new meaning to the words 'hot off the press'.

Despite sweltering temps, we've got some very cool projects below including brilliant student work from the Glasgow School of Art and Arts University Bournemouth, a recipe zine one creative couple made for their wedding guests and even, yes, a Christmas catalogue!

Arts University Bournemouth degree show newspaper

Illustration celebration

Congratulations to the 2022 Arts University Bournemouth’s illustration graduates! This year’s degree show catalogue, featuring work from over 60 students, is printed on our traditional broadsheets and comes to life when viewed through an accompanying AR filter (see it in action on Instagram!)

A newspaper is “a really great format to culminate the year and show off the talent we have,” says Harriet Mummery, technician demonstrator at AUB. “It’s big, bold and beautiful — plus it's easy to give out at exhibitions and the New Designers showcase.”

Favorite recipes wedding zine newspaper

Recipes for love

Take one creative couple, add recipes they love to cook together, sprinkle in a few engagement photos and send to print! That’s how designer Audrie Kapinus and her now-husband Chris cooked up a totally unique souvenir for their wedding guests, printed on our digital minis.

“We loved debating which recipes would make the cut and designing it to fit with our stationery,” says Audrie. “We've had guests reach out about the meals they've made, and I've even had friends of friends request digital versions!"

Drawing Fashion exhibition by Iain R Webb at Drawing Projects UK. Catalogue printed by Newspaper Club.

Runway replay

For his exhibition at Drawing Projects UK, fashion editor Iain R. Webb is showcasing pages from the 200+ sketchbooks he filled while covering designer collections for publications like The Times, The Evening Standard and Elle UK.

“During research for the project, I realised that all my early fashion information came not from Vogue or glossy magazines but via my parents’ newspapers,” says Iain. So he worked with designer Simon Cryer of Northbank Design to create a catalogue that nods to this influence, printed on our digital tabloids.

“The reaction has been amazing,” says Iain. “I previewed the newspaper on Instagram and immediately received requests for copies from Europe and America, along with invitations to tour the exhibition. The reaction is best summed up in a review by cultural commentator Paul Gorman: 'Try any which way you can to get hold of the 20-page newsprint catalogue...it's a thing of wonder.’”

Catalogues for Glasgow School of Art degree shows printed by Newspaper Club

Diverse designs

Eight different catalogues for eight different design degrees at Glasgow School of Art, all printed on our traditional tabloids. From interior design to jewellery design, each catalogue showcases student work alongside a synopsis of their dissertations.

“Glasgow School of Art has a long history of nurturing the printed format,” say designers Kat Loudon and Phoebe Willison. “Printed catalogues are something the students can take home and keep as a memory of the shows or pass on to family and friends who couldn't make it.”

The Information Front photography from Ukraine newspaper printed by Newspaper Club

Scenes from Ukraine

The Information Front documents the first two months of the war in Ukraine through images from 25 Ukrainian photojournalists. Organised by Kateryna Radchenko, Christopher Nunn and Donald Weber, the project aims to support the work of these photographers and provide visibility of the conflict.

All profits from the publication go to the Ukrainian organization Depth of the Arts Fund. Designed by Sybren Kuiper and printed on our traditional tabloids.

RAW, an endometriosis comic by Justyna Green printed on mini zines by Newspaper Club

Raw feelings

With vivid imagery and brutal honesty, RAW tells the story of a woman living with the painful condition of endometriosis. The 32-page digital mini is created by Justyna Green, an award-winning illustrator and a host of the popular On Design podcast. It follows her online comic Living with Endometriosis, which won the World Illustration Awards in 2021.

“All of the literature around endometriosis is fact and text-driven, yet there's a whole host of emotions underpinning living with the condition,” says Justyna. “I chose a comic format to better explain how the condition feels and to help people living with it feel less lonely.” You can buy a copy for £10 from Justyna’s website.

The Clipper holiday catalogue printed by Newspaper Club

Christmas in July

Don’t panic — you won’t start hearing Christmas music just yet. But for retail businesses, it’s time to start holiday planning and Toronto-based greeting card and gifts wholesaler Paper E. Clips is getting a head start with this digital mini catalogue.

“The zine was a perfect size to mail out and we love that it’s completely recyclable,” say designers Hanna Dykstra and Sabino Lops. “As a wholesale business, it’s important to not only keep our retailers happy but also the brands we represent. We heard from our brands that they were proud to be featured!”

Studio Museum in Harlem Art newspaper printed by Newspaper Club

Student sketches

Looking to artworks at the Studio Museum in Harlem for inspiration, students from Thurgood Marshall Academy Lower School (TMALS) created their own art newspaper using our digital broadsheets.

The project was “Inspired by how school and community newspapers help communities celebrate each other and share knowledge,” says designer Sebastien Pierre. The students “loved seeing their work published in such a large scale format,” he says. “They were excited to bring home the newspaper to show their parents!”

Manon womens football zine printed by Newspaper Club

Publishing goals

MANON is an independent football magazine sharing stories from the women's side of the game. It’s published to coincide with major tournaments — this issue celebrates the re-scheduled Women's Euro competition happening in England this month.

“I wanted to bring the stories to life physically and I love the idea of creating — what I hope to be! — an indispensable product in a historically dispensable medium,” says founder Jenny Simmons. Printed on our digital minis.

Queer Design Club newspaper by Michael Morton

Membership perks

For his final project at Chelsea College of Art, recent graduate Michael Morton devised a physical membership pack for online platform Queer Design Club. The Queer Design Post, printed on our digital tabloids, is included alongside branded stickers, badges, keychains and a member ID card.

“The design process was a fun exercise in combining classic newspaper motifs with experimental typography and a digital-inspired design system,” says Michael. “The newspaper subverts expectations of what is deemed ‘normative’ news and it’s gotten a great reception from my peers, tutors, and the industry.”
