THIS IS A ZINE
Releasing every Sunday, "This Is A Zine" is a personal project where my friends and I will explore all areas of design and the world we live in. Each publication will be downloadable at home for free and created using a single sheet of paper for print lovers.
A digitally enhanced version will accompany it on IG: @ThisIsAZine and @Josh_Eberhard.
