Paperboy Press is an ever-evolving brand with a deliberate mission to democratize design and bring it into the everyday. It is a manifesto of sorts and an open declaration to the world that brands can be decoupled from their corporate counterparts.
Between tchotchkes and design thinking, there is a wide range of ephemera which become increasingly inaccessible as you abandon physical objects and move toward the heart of a brand. Paperboy seeks to remedy this via freely distributed resources which enable anyone to participate in creative endeavors.

The Grid Paper Anthology is a collection of printer-friendly grid sheets. They are free to download, print, and share as anyone wishes, because big ideas often start with pen on paper and there should be no restrictions on making it happen.
The Anthology receives new additions as the demand for new forms and patterns arises. The current rotation includes pocket-sized dot-grid, cross-grid, and windowpane patterns.
Designed to be easily distributable and picturesque for snappy moments, Paperboy Zines are part of a publication program under the Paperboy brand. It’s a collection from artists by artists to share thoughts and feelings in an approachable way.
The first volume, “MODEL MINORITY” examines the origins of the term and its hateful roots in anti-Black rhetoric. Racial bias, intentional or not, needs to be put under the lens as with many social issues the publication is designed to address.
With the future of the platform at stake, defining the values behind Paperboy was important. It provides and equitable way for voices to be heard, not to shut down others.
Paperboy seeks to remove the barriers in front of individuals seeking to empower themselves through their creative passions. The Paperboy Invoice Template keeps it simple and easy to manage freelance and contract work, because an invoice should never stand in the way of getting properly compensated.
In order to accomodate all types of creatives, the invoice template is available in spreadsheet and Illustrator file formats while retaining visual parity.
