Paint the Town Red

Book Design
Fall 2015

This 12x12 hard bound coffee table book, Paint the Town Red, was designed to showcase the baseball culture and traditions of Cincinnati. To the citizens of Cincinnati, the Reds are more than just a professional sports team, they are a maker of memories and a source of fascination, excitement and hometown pride. Instead of creating a book about the history of the Cincinnati Reds, I wanted to capture this passion that the people of Cincinnati have for their baseball team, and how this passion began. I did this by highlighting subjects close to the fans' hearts, such as Opening Day and the Findlay Market Parade, the Big Red Machine, and the city's hometown boys. I styled famous quotes said by players, reporters and broadcasters that clearly emphasize the importance of baseball to the people of Cincinnati.
