Client: Crystal Coast Agency: The Zimmerman Agency Role: Creative Direction, Art Direction, Design, Illustration Description: This is something that's been finished for awhile, I just kept forgetting to post. Each year North Carolina's Crystal Coast does a promotion called Ghosts of the Coast. Not many people know about a lot of the crazy history the place has, so it's a good chance to highlight things like the capture of Blackbeard, wild shipwreck surviving horses that roam the area and a little girl buried in a rum barrel.
The site was inspired by old newspapers that would've been in circulation at the time and could have possibly reported some of these events. Thick, heavy type... etchings... messy, less than perfect letters... all inspiration for the overall look and feel.
