Liverpool Graffiti Book

Editorial Design / Design For Print


Book archived at Liverpool Central Library


Here I was asked to design Liverpools first ever graffiti book paying homage to the pre Photoshop DIY zine culture with a modern twist.

Based on submissions alone of digital and 35mm photography as well as sketches and newspaper cuttings I incorporated the pre Photoshop cut and paste method were initially it would be done by hand using scissors, glue if necessary and a scanner. 

Incorporating this I combined a modern twist to it such as the typographic front cover were I added every "tag" in the book which created an informative front cover giving a teaser to the size of the book and what to expect. 

Using the front cover preview also worked well on social media as promotional piece creating excitement around the books release encouraging people to purchase.
