Description: Functions as basic book and as accordion book
This is project was to create a book using a location in Milwaukee, WI. Metcalfe Park is known for crime, but is working hard to turn around its image. I used the colors red and yellow to reference the violent past, and the optimistic future. I used a baseball bat as a dominant image. The copy I used was from a news article detailing the attacks and gang activity in the area, one of which was a beating using a baseball bat.
I chose the title “Living Community” because I liked the idea that it suggested about the changes occurring in the location, as well as the senior living facility that was built there. I used ruled and dashed lines to emphasize the radial grid, as well as bring attention to different bodies of text.
