D002 → The Gendered Burden of Care Work

October–November 2023

A jumbo newsprint zine which encourages readers to recognize the burden of unpaid care work placed on women and advocates for the redistribution of such labor. It adapts text from the 2022 Atlantic article “The Devaluation of Care Work is by Design” by Angela Garbes and “Recognize, Reduce, and Redistribute Unpaid Care Work “ by Diane Elson from the New Labor Forum.

Design draws from second wave feminist print culture to convey a sense of urgency and encourage the reader to action. Display typeface is bold and condensed, echoing language famously employed by Deva Pardue and Barbara Kruger. 

Typeset in FK Screamer Legacy and Myriad Pro.
