Studio Elana Schlenker

Love/Hate zine workshop

Collaborative zine-making workshop conceived in partnership with Makeshift Society Brooklyn, Gerardo Madera of Common Satisfactory Standard, and Adobe Typekit. Participants were tasked with creating their own page illustrating one thing they loved (printed in neon pink) and one thing they hated (printed in red). The pages were printed at the event by Madera, offering attendants a live introduction to Risograph printing. Each participant received a copy of the zine along with binding instructions and tools prepared by Makeshift Society. In addition to co-developing and co-leading the workshop, I also created the zine’s cover and developed and designed a page of resources for those interested in making, producing, and selling their own publications beyond the event.
