Hackney Tabloid Voodoo Paedo Sparks Alarm!

May 12, 2010

I’ve been photographing the headline boards of my local newspaper, the Hackney Gazette, for the past 3 years or so, compiling the images in a blog Grandma Jailed For Xmas, previously featured here. The brief for our final project this year – “explore London through the eyes of a designer” – presents the perfect opportunity to turn this mild preoccupation into an unhealthy obsession. Over the next 4 weeks I’ll produce 13 posters (one for each workshop this term), each with a different typographic interpretation of a headline from the collection. Look out for ripe gems such as Giant Hole Swallows Soccer Player, Voodoo Curse Mum In Fingers Horror, and Sex Beast Tears Off Victims False Arm.
