Marvin Braude Mulholland Gateway Park
8 Sided Kiosk
Design under pressure! These kiosk panels were designed under a tight 1-week deadline for the rededication of Marvin Braude Mulholland Gateway Park. The park commemorates Marvin Braude’s fight to preserve natural habitat in the Santa Monica Mountains and the ecological importance of the area.
Text was written, pictures taken and gathered, and ArcGIS map files transferred over 7 days and nights. I directed content and organization for each panel while also designing the layout, editing photos, proofing copy, and transforming basic ArcGIS parcel boundary files into a park visitor friendly recreational map of the area. All design work, including the map creation, was done by myself while working with the MRCA Public Affairs Coordinator to write the text, fact check, and create the overall messaging.
While there were many different parts to work on, the creation of original artwork for the map took the most time. This gave me a chance to work with a GIS specialist to utilize ArcMap files to create an accurate to scale map to help park users navigate the network of trails that the park leads to.
