Spraff Mag

This was a group project consisting of eight members and we were set the brief to create a 32-page magazine. We had to decide on the subject matter of the magazine, the layout, the typefaces used, the featured imagery and content, it was all in our hands. We decided to base the magazine on scrounging illustrated by the mag name 'Spraff', northern slang for scrounger. The magazine addressed ways of saving money and scrounging to survive through using illustrated techniques within the mag and featured stories of people who have scrounged, abused and scammed systems to survive. Also becoming a lighthearted approach to the recession with humorous editorial to brighten up this depressing time.
