Newspaper Club for Fred Perry

Fresh fashion

Fred Perry keeps up with their “fast-moving, fashion-focused audience” with help from a traditional tabloid, designed by creative agency Studio Small. Since 2018, they’ve produced a quarterly catalogue inspired by the lo-fi feel of self-published zines and the "golden era" of magazines like NME.

"The newspaper is a super cost-effective way to do mass print in an age of digital,” says Studio Small. “It's enticing to look at but not too precious — customers feel comfortable picking it up and reading it."
