City Collage Series

Role: Photo illustration

As part of my final undergraduate graphic design capstone, I was required to complete a 30-day passion project. I chose to create a series of 12 photo collages for cities I’ve visited and love. I researched each city, collected photos, and then cut them out, edited and arranged the images for each piece.

Initial sketches for D.C., Copenhagen and Paris. I started each collage by making a list of all the landmarks and elements to include. I then drew out a rough plan so I had a better idea of what to look for when browsing for photos.
