Work in Type
Second Edition

Created in collaboration with Lili Phillips. Published under Nearly.


Work In Type is an experimental newspaper, designed and issued by Nearly: a newly-launched publishing house run by myself and Lili Phillips.
    To give you an overview Nearly is currently managing a live online archive, showcasing the works of third-year, BA Graphic Communication students at Central Saint Martins. Being a part of this community amid the current global circumstances, means both myself and Lili understand the pressures students are facing. Therefore, the publishing platform, Nearly, was designed with a unique point of focus: a lack of expectations. Students are warmly invited to submit the mess with confidence; the explosive mind-maps, the faulty prototypes, and unpublished gems.
    For the second edition, we completely re-designed the cover. Featuring typefaces that are used throughout the publication, each selected from independent type foundries. We sold all 20 within minutes and all profits went towards our future degree show.
