The clientSchool assignmentThe project
Present a city or a place you want to show. It can be a place that inspires you, unknown places that only you know of. Present a happening, a theme or details from that place in the form of a book, folder, brochure or a magazine. Write at least 1000 words about this place.The result
I wanted to show signs of old hand painted wall ads and store signs still visible in Oslo city. The reason is that I think todays ad commercials and signs lack the handcraft feeling. It's just printed ads and machine cut plastic signs.
The product is a brochure with 9 different sights. Each place is photographed and a small text tells you about the ad or sign. There is also a map with a suggested route you can follow, using a city bike (a free 24h city bike card is included in the brochure).
This is the first brochure in a series of 4 and it's a part of a bigger exhibition about graphic design before the computer was introduced. The exhibition will take place at DogA (Norsk Design- og Arkitektursenter)
The brochure is a cooperation between DogA
and Oslo Bysykkel
(Oslo City Bike).
