The Cleveland Architecture Coloring Book is a uniquely innovative publication on the city that entertains and educates users of all ages. It takes the format of the old, stuffy architectural companion and throws it out the window, in support of an interactive approach. The coloring book offers information about the architect, year completed and location so you can color and arrange a field trip to see your favorite works.

If you want to have some fun and learn a little in the process, this is the publication for you. Don't be shy, there is no need to stay inside the lines, just pick a page and make some space on the refrigerator.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenges facing the Cleveland Architecture Coloring Book are the costs to cover printing and the intense schedule required to have it in bookstores in time for the holidays. The cost to print 1,500 copies is approximately $3,500, and in order to have books ready for the holidays they need to be printed by Mid-November, carrying an added level of risk. The enthusiasm and momentum surrounding the Cleveland Architecture Coloring Book is extremely high, and with a background in architecture, urban design, and graphic design I am confident in my ability to meet project goals.
