We produced two pieces of work for the limited thirteenth and final issue of OWT
. The first was a collaboration with Ian Anderson of The Designers Republic™
. Ian wrote the intro, we designed his spreads, he was happy and so were we. The second piece was based around the issue's theme of "Reprocess". Zines were overprinted in two colours on a range of GF Smith Colorplan stocks.
Here's some more info about #13 from the guys at OWT:
"When we started OWT zine we agreed on a run of twelve issues. This is our thirteenth.
Commissioned by the Manchester School of Art and in collaboration with the Graphic Design team, Issue 13: Reprocess follows a different approach to usual. We not only focused on how work can satisfy a theme, but also, how it changes meaning when juxtaposed with a different creative’s work.
Submissions from the OWT back catalogue form a background layer of pre-existing themes, ready to be manipulated and reprocessed by new work. This changes the context and makes new interpretations while initiating serendipitous collaborations. GF Smith Colourplan and six-colour Riso printing help add further variables. No two zines in the run of 150 are the same."
