Futuristic Halifax Nova Scotia Canada Postcard Design

August 17, 2014

Glad I stumbled across this class because I have my own postcard project on the go and this will make a perfect project for that. I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and I really want to capture the town clock, the bridge that connects Halifax and Dartmoth, and the ferry service that transports people across the harbour separating Halifax and Dartmouth. It is the longest running ferry service in Canada.

For those that are not familiar with Halifax, here are a few pictures I found on the web.

I also started doing some research on the atomic age era and came up with these as some of my favourites as a moodboard.

As I was looking through the visuals for research, I started doing some sketches of shapes and items I liked.

Then I started doing some thumbnail sketches of what I thought my postcard might look like.

While procrastinating this morning I started playing around with the ferry if it were a flying ferry instead of a boat. Will have many more iterations of it but this is what it looks like right now.
