TIME FOR THE BIG RACE
Boulder Daily Camera: Bolder Boulder Special Section - May 28, 2012
The Bolder Boulder came and went through town this past Memorial Day weekend, and with it came my opportunities to design not only the special section for the race, but also the Camera’s A1 (see later posts).
Thanks to the INCREDIBLE sports department here, and their trust in my designs, I got to take charge of the project above, designing the cover and inside pages.
- The issue was very community-centric, so to capture that, we decided using a collection of community photos on the front would be quite appropriate.
- I went with a slimmer font - serif, of course :) - for the headlines, and designed around the words to make it feel as though the spectators/citizen runners encompassed the Bolder Boulder, which they do.
- For some of the inside pages, I tried to play up the headlines, using their words and the art together to portray a certain mood. I think this one looks classic, vintage to match the photo.
