I made this social media explainer for my third project with Reimagine Arkansas, a project by the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation dedicated to amplifying the voices of those most harshly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Illustration, social media
I used Mark Simonson's beautiful Bookmania as the centerpiece typeface for this project, and this quote wreath shows off its remarkable versatility. The secondary typeface is TipoType's Fieldwork; I used several of its swashed stylistic alternates to mirror the poetic swashes and curves of Bookmania.
I don't consider myself to be much of an illustrator — I do it all with my trackpad, no fancy tablet or anything — but I absolutely love drawing buildings, especially in isometric perspective.
I aimed for color, shadow, and density to play central roles in these illustrations. The "housing spectrum" runs from red (homelessness) to purple (market-rate homeownership).
