Melbourne Water - MMSR

Melbourne Water engaged Affinity Design to produce a commemorative publication to celebrate and document the construction a new sewer line underneath our city of Melbourne.

With various partners and stakeholders receiving the book, it was important to create visually engaging layouts that embodied the project story and the people, as well as capturing the uniqueness of the site.

Die-cut circles and a blind emboss of the Melbourne city skyline were incorporated to enhance the tactile nature of the book, reflecting the textural components of the drilling project.

Working closely with writers and photographers, the book is a beautiful and lasting legacy of this major project that now sits in darkness, underground.
