City of Berkley Annual Report
Illustration of Berkeley for the City of Berkley Annual Report.
This illustration started in early 2020 with a fun drive around Berkley in the rain with our cameras. We collected images of architecture that were quintessentially Berkley
that would tell the story the range of residents from renters to owners from the hills to the flats.
We dove into illustrating more than a dozen buildings from the photos to be the elements of a collage that illustrates the city, and tells the story of updates that the City would share with residents about city planning, safety, parks and transportation.
Callouts were planned and designed to overlay where these changes were happening on the illustration. The Covid shutdown hit as we were finalizing the design, and by necessity this piece was put on hold so that crucial information about public safety could be shared.
