↤ Work/ Grub St. Journal


The Grub St. Journal was my response to a large project we undertook in our second year of university. The project was this: pick a borough in London, find something that you found interesting in it... and then develop a book, a map and an infographic about it.

I picked the City of London as my borough, and discovered somethign; the birthplace of modern journalism, novels and 'hack writers'... Grub Street! You had writers like Jonathan Swift writing alongside hacks- crazy times.

So my response was to make a broadsheet newspaper, in the style of the original Grub St. Journal. The news and subject matter is a bit dated now, so apologies.

Let's work together–
