Urban Pamphleteer is produced by the UCL Urban Laboratory in collaboration with Central Saint Martins Graphic Communication Design. The series is edited by its founders Ben Campkin and Rebecca Ross and designed by Guglielmo Rossi, alongside a range of guest editors.
Urban Pamphleteer was Mag Culture's Magazine of the Week, 19 March 2015. In 2014 it was featured in It's Nice That's 'best stuff' selection, Things, and this was followed up in a 2018 special feature on issue 7. The same issue has been profiled by Stack, who described the pamphlet as a 'satisfyingly informative read, filled with 80s posters and scrupulously-composed maps and data'.
Living Maps describe Urban Pamphleteer as 'excellent'. The magazine was selected for the 2013 world tour of Archizines exhibition and was part of The New Pamphleteers exhibition at Milton's Court in 2018. You can watch a video of the series editors presenting at the For & Against symposium, organised by Loughborough University in 2017.
