Austin Traffic Booklet

The first task at hand was to choose a very current issue that is present today in the news and media. I decided to focus on the issue of Austin Traffic, and go into depth on how the city’s infrastructure can no longer support the amount of people that are moving in and living in Austin. I used articles that illustrate how different people are brainstorming to attempt to terminate the current traffic problem. Through this book making process, I decided to make the book smaller in size to a regular book, that way it could be small enough to carry, but big enough that it would be easy to read for the viewer if they were stuck in a small space. I also wanted to include the different traffic sign shapes to cause the reader to yield and slow down as they read the following news article. Overall I wanted this book to help get people thinking on possible ways traffic can be possibly uncongested.
