Project

København, 2018

Custom Booklet

Overview

When planning a trip it helps to have a detailed itinerary. This past year I visited Copenhagen and created a personalized itinerary booklet to help guide me through my trip. It includes restaurants, museums, activities, stores, and historical locations I researched beforehand.

The printed booklet also includes area maps, store descriptions, hours, and important information for bookings and reservations.

The end result is a pocket-sized booklet that serves as a highly-convenient traveling resource.

Challenge

The challenge in creating this book was the combination of research and planning involved in conjunction with sourcing content and organizing the information in a way that could be quickly referenced for important details like store hours and transit lines.

Process

Design

The process involved several months of diligent research into Copenhagen and searching for high-quality, accurate content. After sourcing enough copy and imagery, I sketched out the layout for the book, narrowed down on a final trim size, and began building out the itinerary in InDesign. Once I finalized the plans, I brought the book to a vendor and had it printed before the trip.

Results

The result is a 100+ page, pocket-sized booklet complete with: brief and detailed itinerary, restaurant reservations, store hours, location and transit maps, and beautiful imagery from Unsplash.

With the booklet in hand, I was much more informed on the trip on what to do and how to do it. This will be an ongoing project for each adventure trip that I take.
