& how to spot it
Title: No Fake News
by: Deanna Andru
Material: Printed News Print 8.5 x 8.5
This Zine is an attempt to advertise and inform the reader on how to determine if the news they are seeing is actual and verified, or an internet hoax or deception.
Several Zines contain six 2-sided cards (3.5 x 3.5) with examples of fake news, statistics, and refolding instructions, at a classmate's recommendation.
Thank you to classmates in BD IV, who recommended the newspaper, adding refolding instructions, being non-partisan, plus making the spots "sportier" and bigger.
Anyone interested in the image files to fold your own Zine, send an email, share the fun!

This is a highly simplified version of the pinwheel, with a window introducing the topic.
final fold prototype
This is the final pinwheel design, only the end product has a larger pinwheel, intentionally to allow for larger text and color variation.

Here I penciled in the folds and scanned the design front and back.

Hi Dan, This was a great project. I loved the hands on design aspect and "crafty" feel.
Everyone liked the zine, some said it isn't a Zine, so I guess it might be a matter of perception.
One concerning reaction was from a person who I did not get a chance to explain while looking at it. She thought it was actually promoting "Fake News". I had to point out the crossed out circle over the "Fake News" on the front before unfolding. So, I will re-do this to make it more obvious.
