Park Point Project
For our last project, my team of shannon, cole and I decided upon Park point for the location of our project. Although it was a tad bigger than what the intended area should be, we had an idea at the start to keep the scale from killing us all. What we decided on was a map of Park Point, showing legends and lore that may or may not exist in the real world. It was to be about Spring and so we are marketing it to tourists, who come up to Duhluth in the Spring for god knows what reason.
The project was to be a double scroll, and we wanted it to be as big as possible without having to tile it together. Craftsmanship takes a nose dive with tilations so we went to a professiional shop to get it done. Being that this was my first time working with a printshop, I was nervous to say the least
UMD printshop says they could not do it, but Shell don could, and for cheap, too! We had to keep it black and white for cost reasons, but it was gonna work out fine. With Cole taking pictures of the area, Shannon ruling the typography and your truly doing what I do best-I'd have to say my confidence level was much higher than ABXRR.
We created it all in illustrator and I scanned my drawings in and through livetrace, the best thing ever, after crunching the photos for effect and placing in the type, we sent it to shell don so they could deny us proofing and print it without telling us. I love printshops.
It's a surprisingly good looking, it's awesome. The surprize is alll about the fake legends of places you already know. The cripsness of all the photos and text. This baby came out nice and my team rocked my socks off.
