Reasons To Be Kind To Pigeons

During my MA in Graphic Design & Typography, I have developed Spotted as a concept for a small ongoing publication, about things easily overlooked in urban spaces. The first prototype issue deals with pigeons, how they are viewed in our everyday life and how we treat them.

The aim of this project was to not only act as a Graphic Designer, but as a project initiator and director. To achieve this goal, I have worked out the visual concept and contents for the zine. While also writing articles myself I have also managed a small team of voluntary writers, who contributed pieces to Spotted.

I have chosen the zine as a medium for the final outcome, because I wanted to explore printing on newsprint and have seen a strong connection between the material and the urban and metropolitan topics Spotted deals with.
