“I love Risograph printing and it has revolutionised self-publishing. Zines no longer have to be black-and-white, badly photo-copied run-offs to be sold for pennies. They can now be multi-coloured, fluorescent, over-printed, graphic objects that can have both artistic and design value... that can still be sold for pennies.”
Jon Hannan is part of Manchester based design collective OWT and also Lecturer of Graphic Design at Manchester School of Art. Starting life as an experiment in publishing, OWT now pride themselves on initiating collaborations and challenging the status quo of how an agency should work: constantly working on self-initiated projects and events alongside conventional client briefs.
