Olympion Cinema

This is a detail from a preliminary rough designed for a map to be designed as part of a brochure for a guided tour of the Olympion cinema. The aim was to do something different and try and encapsulate the whole flooring and room system in a relatable well effect.
The second rough is seen below.
This image shows the full layout including positions for photos and extra side details. The map section was entirely designed and completed in Illustrator and additional cartoons of people (designed by Steve Woods) were added later. This was only part of the whole commission and the entire brochure was completed in similar style.

1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste

Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
