A DIY Revolution

  • Justice Southwell

This project consists of a series of publications encouraging young people to get involved in protest and politics by tackling the barriers many claim prevent their involvement. The publications took the form of risograph printed zines, stickers and posters - employing methods of underground publishing methods commonplace in the 1960s and 1970s. Type and colour choices were made inspired by design from the 60s, activism and protest work - referencing punk and psychedelic movements. The poster designs visually reflect ephemera from the protest explored within the issue - issue 1 garnering inspiration from the Chinese almanac and issue 2 from hand-printed Atelier Populaire posters from 1968.
