Rail-walk Apartment Posters
Beth Deel asked me to create posters for the newly developed Rail-walk Apartments in downtown Roanoke. I wanted all 16 posters to somehow be related to the building. So, I researched its history, former owners, the neighborhood, etc. and using combinations of the information I found, kind of a triangulation, put together posters for the main hallway of the building. This project was similar to many of the other projects I'd been a part of in Roanoke in the sense that it was a history of Roanoke that required research and a way to display what was found.
