A piece for the Shellfish Commission of Greenwich in Connecticut, U.S. The booklet cover is part of an education project encouraging community oyster-growing off the end of the stone jetties into the bay there. A healthy oyster population helps support the ecosystem, filtering pollutants out of the waters around Long Island.
I wanted an informal, traditional but clearly hand-created look, particularly in the lettering. Painted in acrylic ink and watercolour, the design reflects the client's desire to use bright colours.
