The Harvard GSD Student Guidebook is the main reference book for academic policies, department information, facilities, resources, extracurricular activities, etc. It is sent to all accepted students, as well as distributed to prospective students throughout the year. My job was to co-edit the existing book, update the content, illustrate the chapter divisions, and populate the book with doodles. The existing template was designed with informative text and an unseen personality of a GSD student in a font simulating handwriting making comments in the margins. To continue this unseen personality, the illustrations were traced by hand to look as if a student had doodled scenes from the GSD in his or her notebook.
