Homage & Salvage - The Cobbler Project
Year Completed: 2017
Medium: Print, Website
Completed as part of the Diploma in Design Communication level 3 programme at LASALLE.
Awarded the Bronze Crowbar for Photography in the Design Discipline at the 2017 Crowbar Awards.
The goal of The Cobbler Project was to preserve the roadside cobbler trade through an event
featuring a time capsule displaying various artefacts alongside a photo essay journal. The event
titled 'Homage & Salvage' was created with the idea of paying homage to the cobblers that salvage
our shoes. The event featured a website to spread awareness as well as print advertisements.
A journal was created to preserve the trade through interviews, photos and
on the ground research, which will, in turn, educate the audience on the traditional trade.
