This short-run newspaper was a self-initiated project developed in a couple of days and inspired by my interest in, often discarded, ephemera. Taking outdated material, that was perhaps quite obscure even for its time, and redesigning it for now.
The goal was to move away from screen-based research and engage with the subject in a deeper way. I spoke with local venues, record shops and fans to get a better sense of the topic. This led to being given a collection of vintage music publications which provided the direction of the newspapers look. This approach made for a more authentic project which felt connected to the community in a real way.
