LISC Bus Tour Project

I don't often post work projects on the blog but I really enjoyed designing these maps so I thought I would share it here.  Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky LISC was hosting a bus tour for their national group and they needed maps of their route and a booklet describing each stop and their work.  Creating maps is always a fun challenge.  I think the hardest part is getting the scale correct and choosing how much to simplify. You want to keep enough landmarks that people know where they are while also zooming in close enough to show the necessary details. These were printed on letter size paper that would fold in half and get stapled in the middle. So I also had to think about where the folds would go and how the two halves of the map would meet up if printed on separate pages.

Below is the cover of the bus tour booklet.  If you would like to see the entire booklet you can see a pdf here.

I also created eleven posters for the evening event at the CAC displaying highlights of the work LISC does in their target neighborhoods.  Below are three of the posters.

It is so satisfying to see the work in its final venue and to see people interact and learn about the amazing community development work that LISC does in Cincinnati. It feels good to do work for people who do good work.

I love the little icons for the baseball & football stadia. And the riverboat is super cute.

I would like to take this tour. Price Hill is so close; it would be interesting to learn about it.
