Kobe

Hi everyone! Hi Martina, thank you again for sharing your knowledge, it really helps me to have better understanding of typography in addition to lettering technics.

I decided to make a postcard for Kobe, Japan: the city next to my hometown.
Kobe is a beautiful city located between the coast and the mountains. Having a long history as a port city, it has exotic atmosphere compare to any other places in Japan. Western-style buildings and houses from nineteenth century, many of them were built for the western immigrants, still remain around the city.

Even though I’ve been there recently, personally I have a nostalgic feeling to Kobe from my childhood memories.

HAND SKETCHES

I picked the bottom right one in my thumbnail for further development. Because of my nostalgia for Kobe, I want to give the retro and imperfect look, something like the last two images of old record jackets in my second moodboard.
