My interest sparked with the possibilities of matching colours throughout this project. The goal was to create a concertina book – can’t seem to get away from choosing the hardest option – since I had already made two zines during this year and wanted to try something new.
After a few colour matches, I chose blue and red since when overlapped, they created a beautiful dark purple with a great effect.
The story needed to be simple and completely visual, which worked pretty well for me since I have called east london my home for the past 5 years.
A simple path, that looked like a mini printed version of google maps, a straight line to follow that would bring you to the most interesting points on that area.
I also used typography (Rockwell type), which I felt represented and would give the project its “East London look”.
