We recently completed an assignment where we had to write a literary and contextual review about a subject of our choice. Of course we chose sustainability and concentrated on the forties war mentality of make do and mend where goods were scarce and possessions were much prized. We entitled the article The Austerity Times, which continued the theme and then put the essays into a newspaper format. It worked really well and we were both proud of the result. We incorporated advertisements for Dodo Designs and other humorous ads and designed it to be quirky and very tongue in cheek, so check out the result and tell us what you think!
