Malacca Booklet

The Rustic Charm of Malacca


In late 2015, my cohort and I paid a visit to the historic city of Malacca. The contents of this booklet revolved around what secrets the city holds, accompanied by photographs of the city.

These brush strokes were painstakingly drew one by one, I created them myself with a Japanese calligraphy brush. So what happened was, I hand-lettered the words on a piece (or 20) of paper, scanned it, then bring it over to Adobe Photoshop to be treated (apply effects and overlays). After it was exported into png file, I then paste it into Adobe InDesign to piece together with the images and the rest of the elements.
