📌📌📌 Pins and zines 📌📌📌

A guide to Backpacking Washington's Enchantment's with Hum Creative. A self initiated studio project, the website details on the ground info we couldn't find online when we were planning our trip.

Example: Mountain goats will drink your pee.

Brought together and edited our content, wireframed and designed the site, shot the vines, wrote the copy. Worked to frame the project as a candid travelogue with wide appeal to share our stoke and vision, and to get it in the hands of like-minded mountain people we want to work with.
