Brooklyn Eats!

Brooklyn Eats! - student project

Brooklyn Eats! - image 1 - student projectI love food and am always looking to share my favorite restaurants.  While I already blog about many of my favorite spots (, I thought it might be neat to also create some visual representations of some of the places near my house.

  • Why am I making this map? For fun? A client? A gift? To showcase my favorite places? Etc.

For guests!  There's nothing that makes me sadder than someone having a meal they didn't enjoy.  NYC is a bit overwhelming and visitors should feel confident that they're going someplace tasty!

  • Why am I the expert to create this map?

I constantly photograph and make notes about the places I've been- plus I love to try new things!

  • Who is my target audience?

Anyone who loves great food, doesn't want to spend a lot of money and just needs a little help around the NYC area.

  • Do I want my final project to be printed or digital? How is going to be used/held? What other constraints do I need to keep in mind moving forward? 

I would like to do something printed, but it'd be great to have it in a format that could also be uploaded and printed.

  • What level of detail do I need to include? (Names, addresses, contact info, street names, website, hours, descriptions, color coding, etc.)

I think just enough so that someone could find the restaurants- so major cross streets should be sufficient.

  • Dear class, I need your help/expertise/guidance on how to.....

How to make this informative but also visually appealing.
