Highlighting Gay History

Newspaper Ad for Gay Pioneer Square Architectural Tour

Client: Seattle Architecture Foundation
Project description: Seattle Gay News newspaper ad for Gay Pioneer Square walking tour
Year: 2009
Media: print
Collateral: ad 4.875×7.75″
Competencies: graphic design & layout, original photography, photo editing, file optimization for newsprint
Thoughts: I still love, love, love this project. My young design self went through so many concepts, some inspired by historic research, others by Pioneer Square architecture, until I zeroed in on this solution. How sometimes the symbolism of shape and color says it best, combined with an architectural photograph.
