Neighbourhoods First

In the spring of 2016, I worked with Calgary City Councillor, Evan Woolley and his office to create a zine to highlight some of the issues and stories taking place in his ward.

The piece was printed on a single sheet on newsprint and was distributed along with the May issue of Beatroute.

I handled the design and illustration while Twyla Yacyshyn created the playful lettering in the titles and pull-quotes.

Neighbourhoods First includes 4 articles of local and city-wide concern as well as a general infographic. The challenge was to present the information in an interesting way and to speak to the unique demographic of Ward 8.
