Solsona is a beautiful little medieval town, and there's a young, energetic group of tour guides that are producing a number of themed tours around the old city in the hopes of bringing in more tourism. They asked me to produce a series of tickets for these tours.
The town already had an established image for their tourism materials (see old poster created by the city council below), and I was asked to make the tickets work into this existing style. I kept the red and white palette, but ratcheted up the saturation to suggest the youthful energy of the guides.
The focal point of each ticket is a single element that is relevant to the tour being purchased, and which connects the white right-hand part of the ticket with a thick red band which corresponds to the perforated edge that is torn off and kept by the company.
Helvetica Condensed is a fine typeface for public administration, but it really doesn't capture the character of Solsona from a tourism perspective. And so I kept the condensed sans serif (in this case Avenir Next) for the quotation but changed everything else to Warnock Pro, which provides a more traditional, old world vibe while also suggesting studiousness and storytelling – both important elements of guiding.
These two tickets will serve as templates for tickets to new tours that the company plans to offer in the future.
