CHE/GAGA 33605: Sense of place Ybor City, FL

Project Description:
After visiting Ybor City for 8 hours I had to design a 20 page book to show my overall sense of the place in a unique way.

Creative Reasoning:
When developing my overall sense of Ybor I came to the conclusion that the city was just a big juxtaposition of Cuban history and more modern upbeat nightclubs. I took that overall idea and pushed it further to develop the content for the book. To represent the idea of Cuban history I took quotes from the Cuban revolutionary, Che Guevara, and balanced them against lyrics from singer Lady Gaga to represent the nightclub culture. The overall design follows the same gerenal theme by mixing bright, fresh, young colors of the nightclubs with old black and white photographs of historic Ybor City, FL. The title is derived from the book's content and the area code of Ybor. The book is made of french folded pages in a Japanese style binding.

Materials:
-Laser-etched black plexi-glass ( done through Blackbooks)
-60lbs. Polar Matte paper
-Magenta embroidery thread
-Black cardstock

Enjoy!
