Civil War Montage

One of my favorite pieces ever, this montage was designed for one of several promotional brochures for the new Gettysburg Battlefield Museum. The creative director supplied me with a loose collection of some of the images she wanted, as well as a color reference for style (both shown below), and then let me go at it. I felt the addition of a photo of Lincoln’s Gettysburg address in his own hand as a graphic element to be a no-brainer, and my art director agreed. The client was very happy with the final result; so much so that similar montages were requested for other promotional pieces such as the trade show banner included in the gallery, and a website masthead.
