European Heritage Day – Strasbourg

Poster and brochure design for the European Cultural Heritage Day in Strasbourg. The brochure is also intended to be used as a tourist guide of the city.

European Heritage Day – Strasbourg

The poster / cover design showcases Strasbourg’s heritage and architectural style. The intricacy of the design reflects the minutia of detail in Alsatian architecture. I chose the most notable landmarks of the city, in terms of cultural and political importance. The circles create a continuum between the past and the present, a timeline in which the past questions the future of the city.

The brochure serves as a Strasbourg tourist guide. The map and legend fold out behind the document, which make it possible to read the description and information about the place, whilst looking at the photo and locating the building and address on the city map. The brochure is organised into neighbourhoods with a tab system. The numbering links each section of text to the location on the map.

The circles are aerial view of Strasbourg, the Meinau football stadium, the Cosswiller Helidrome (a futuristic bioclimatic house), the Grand Mosque, the Council of Europe and the central tram station – Homme de Fer

The font Prumo Display reflects the elegance of Alsatian architecture. The shade of green used for this project is often used for communication within the city, and has connotations of public space and green spaces.
