fresh off the Liberty printers and the LCC blog!...
Students in The Liberated Press
Good news for some of our FdA Design for Graphic Communication and BA Journalism students who were selected to feature in lo-fi quarterly periodical, The Liberated Press.
Chloe Rosina White, Eurico Sa Fernandes, Benjamin Rider [gettin!], Mariana Lobao, Pimm Chongcharoen and Petter Lundgren (BA Journalism) were successful to a call out for “manifestos, gonzo journalism, DIY fiction, poetic ramblings, mix-ups, mash-ups and screw ups” amongst other things, and their work helped comprise Issue 2.
Students were briefed by FdA Design for Graphic Communication alumna Rebecka Behrman who is currently working for Liberty as a graphic designer.
The Liberated Press is inspired by 60s and 70s underground counter culture and ‘zines and is made keeping computers at a minimum. It seeks to provide a platform for emerging writers, artists and designers wanting to “explore their creativity in print” and is stocked in Magma and Concrete Hermit.
I really like the paper itself! bit of fun and interesting. it genuinely is worth a leaf through
if your very lucky theres some circulating in nice letterpressed brown bags with 2 free badges
quite pleased I got involved in something outside of uni, unfortunately most of our submissions are tiny and Im probably not going to bung it in my portfolio. not going to stop me putting it on my blog though!
fingers crossed still for the V+A illustration competition, judged this coming april
