Yellow was an exciting digital and book project that saw 52 of the world's most exciting artists illustrate 52 an entire year of news stories. The concept was to investigate what artists can bring to news coverage beyond traditional print and TV journalism.

- Planning content, editorial strategy and identity for both the digital series and print title
- Commissioning all artists, writers and designers
