From the Design Archive, #4 in a Series

When I was Programme Director at Trent Radio in the late 1980s, my favourite project (ironic given the setting) was the publication of The Radio Paper, a tabloid newspaper with the radio schedule, and articles about various and sundry. I was the editor, paste-up artist, and I drove it up to the printer in Tweed. I had total creative control, and I loved the newspaper format.

This is what ran “above the fold” in the first issue, September 1989. I love the typeface. And the white space. And the period.

Funny, I just dug up and posted a sentimental summer 1989 text of my own today.
