Self-directed brief

In my second year, I produced  a booklet on De Beauvoir Town as a way of promoting the area and to enable the residents to become more aware of their local history. For my self-directed brief, I wish to re-design this De Beauvoir Town booklet, and create a series of booklets on the districts of Hackney.

After researching on the internet, I found that there are not many printed publications out there that are on Hackney or its history. I wish to appeal to a wide variety of the residents by presenting the history & landmarks in a clear way. Each booklet will contain the same sections – a hand-drawn map, history, visual imagery, local characters – present day & historical. The typeface shall remain the same throughout the series as to keep some consistency, but each booklet will be designed according to the feel of the place.
