THE DESIGN PROBLEM
O‘ahu’s most authentic and vibrant neighborhood is thrust into the spotlight. As an “insiders’ guide,” there are many layers of information—we wanted a way to celebrate the revitalization of Honolulu’s Chinatown through imagery and art while pulling the reader through the many narratives and sidebar information.
THE DESIGN SOLUTION
Our concept was to bridge the “traditional” with the “new.” Images of classic Chinatown are integrated and layered with current Chinatown. This comprehensive guide includes a historical timeline, map, food recommendations and profiles of the lives and loves of Chinatown’s most well-known figures. Traditional motifs and illustration bring the liveliness and true grit of the famous neighborhood to our readers.
