The Daughters of the American Revolution Cumberland County Chapter is centered in beautiful Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Chartered in July of 1895, their chapter has worked continually to preserve the history of Cumberland County, honor the legacy of their Revolutionary War patriots, and support their veterans and active-duty military for 125 years.
In 2019, I worked closed with two members of their organization to create a 145-page book publication that chronicled the houses through Cumberland County involved in the rich history of the American Revolutionary War. The layout design showcases the homes as the primary subject matter with the content composed in a way that complements their structure. Serif headers were selected to further echo the historical nature of the book and its subject matter. The color palette of green, teal, and blue was inspired by the paint, brick and colors that the houses still maintained over the years of their existence. The book was organized by township and I consciously chose to rotate through the color palette in a cyclical manner. Given the sheer size and importance of the project, we went through an extensive proofing process that lasted almost a year to perfect the design for membership sale.
