We were tasked to create a 30-50 page book of whatever we desired. I grew up reading the Haunted Canada and Spooky Stories to Tell in the Dark books as well as devouring shows like Ghost Adventures and so I wanted to create something in honour of those.

The Process

Brand Guidelines

I started by researching some popular spots and then looked further into specific experiences had by visitors. I then wrote up a rough document for myself to help me plan out the illustrations to draw for each page, which were all drawn digitally by me on my ipad. The final task was amalgamating all my work and ensuring that the type fit the images in a clean and readable way.
