a photography zine documenting my trip to New York and Toronto in May 2019.
I took a trip to New York City and Toronto in May 2019. I decided to document my trip in 35mm film. Upon developing the rolls I decided to make a zine about the trip.
I realized the photos would take away from the background less if they were black and white. I wanted to do a layout where the photos did not take up the whole page, allowing me to play with spacing; colour photos would distract from any background other than white, and I like pastels.
I used the Pantone website to create a rainbow across the book in pastel blocks. I moved the photos around so that while they were still the hero of the zine, they gave up some space for inane ramblings and peeks at the background colour of each page
One photo I shot from the hip turned out pretty well. It was the only option for the zine’s cover.
I went to Clubcard for printing the thing; this is the proof before the final print. It came out exactly as I expected—it was a very good first professional printing experience.
I’m already thinking about my next design project, but this was super fun to work through and see in physical copy.
