Illustrated Halloween Map

I was commissioned to illustrate and design a map and tour guide for the Chatsworth House Halloween season of events. I was given a rough idea of copy and asked to create illustrations that brought out certain elements of the trail, making sure they could be arranged with space for the text. I was asked the design the leaflet to be double sided on A2 and fold down to A5.

I obvioulsy had to take into consideration where the folds would be so these were all measured and marked out and I created a rough visual for approval. I then went on to create each illustration individually by hand in pen, adding the colour digitally and then placing each into a Photoshop file in order to create a detailed composition. I placed in each illustration on a separate layer so I could move them around and scale to accommodate text as it changed. I then adapted the layout in InDesign and, after changes, created a pdf file with crease marks and bleed.

 Each illustration is drawn by hand, scanned and then coloured digitally in order to arrange into a composition. All the lettering was created by hand also.
