Been in working on the collaborative carnival zine again today. Its coming together, but I’ve got to say i’m having a much different experience working with other designers compared to on my own. I think its cool that each page will look different, but organisation is pretty difficult in such a…
Got it in one Graham! A definite harsh reality of how industry works. Hopefully It should benefit the Zine and refine the concept but effectively the concept should have been defined originally e.g. having a clear connection to carnival and incorporating lateral aspects to connect to Salford Uni and ourselves as designers.
Definitely more input ultimately makes a better solid piece of work but should be involved from the start. I would never agree with people having to share DPS just because of print costs. If its a collaborative zine everyone should have the same equal platform to work from whether that be stock to print on, size i.e. DPS and therefore everyone has an equal opportunity to shine in there design and the techniques they use.
And I reckon your DPS was awesome anyway Graham
