Noodle Zine was born in May 2009 after many weeks of deliberation and ideas. Originally planned to be my final degree project, it has taken on a life of it’s own selling more issues than I have (runs back to printers). Using a combination of hand made rubber stamps and hand drawn typography, Noodle tried to fill the gap in the editorial market for the 8-13 year old age group. Both for girls or boys, and indeed adults who need a break from celebrity gossip mags. Noodle is filled with things to do such as recipes, intructions for making your own zine, and much more. With puzzles and doodle pages, this black and white zine can be drawn on and coloured in to provide a bit of something for everyone.
The first issue came free with a tin of Noodle mints and a cotton shopper bag with the Noodle cover hand screen printed on the front, and a personalised original hand stitched and printed image on the back.
