This is a project I did through oDesk (now Upwork), with a client from South Africa. The client wanted to set a story she told at a friend’s wedding into a scroll to give to the couple on their first anniversary.
The wedding took place on the banks of the Zambezi river in South Africa, so I edited a stock photo of a sunset in the same place to look like a watercolor, and added line drawings to emphasis certain parts of the story. Line drawings were all adapted from clip art, and the illustration of the Little Buffalo was traced from a clip art sketch, and then simplified.
The piece was printed full-bleed on A3 paper. Click on the image for a larger view (2.6 MB).
Long form design is something I really enjoy. These books are all in the 40-50 page range, and each covered a full month of concerts in the 2007-2008 season at the University of Chicago Presents.
The covers were designed by Lisa Lim, then sent to me with all of the content. I then developed a full template to tie all four books together. Advertisements were inserted as appropriate. The covers and opening pages are in full color, and the rest of the book in black and white. The finished books were printed on coated magazine paper with heavier covers.
