About the Neighborhood
This project is part of the Local Flavor Guide series produced by the Mile High Business Alliance. Old South Pearl Street is the quintessential Denver neighborhood. Lined with a variety of boutiques and restaurants and surrounded by well-kept and colorful brick bungalows, Old South Pearl can make for a lovely afternoon stroll. The neighborhood can also boast to be home to some of the best sushi in the world, as the award-winning Sushi Den marks the main cross roads at South Pearl and E Florida Ave. This intersection is also the location of the farmers market, which takes place on Saturdays in the summer months.
My Role in this Project
This guide is part of the first four guides we put together (E Colfax, Santa Fe, Gaylord, Pearl). For these first four guides, I created the umbrella brand for Local Flavor Guides and the basic concept for what information was to be included and how it was to be laid out. I also gathered all of the information on the businesses on foot with clipboard in-hand to make sure everything was accurate.
The art direction for this guide, as always is to give a good feel of the neighborhood. The images used in each guide is a combination of photography that I shot, illustrations I drew, and some stock images. Scroll through the images above to see the finished guide and the photos I took for it. You can download a pdf of the guide from MHBA’s site.
