Visual Language of Hawker Signs (Process Journal)
This book documents the creative process of a degree project, “Hawker Signs”. It began as an online journal (http://hawkersigns.tumblr.com) and is now reformatted for print. I wrote most of the posts spontaneously to organise my thoughts in a mannerism of note taking. It is not meant to be a narrative, and they might not appear sequentially. The posts are not in chronological order, it is arranged such that the reader could follow the development of each piece of work. This project is process based, and the process itself informs most of the work. Thus, it is important to present the process as a body of work that is cohesive with the final outcome. 

The covers are made from scrap materials used to create the poster. I decided not to throw them away and re-purpose them as covers for this process journal. I spray painted them to form the title “Hawker Signs” when they are laid out.
