Adding to the mix of maps and guides to Charleston, but with a local business focus, C: Charleston released its first edition in May and is now available a numerous downtown locations. Designed and published by J.C. Tripp of JCT Creative, C: Charleston features a unique square format that folds out to reveal short articles, a business directory, a calendar of cultural events, a map of downtown and display ads of sponsors.
C: Charleston is the antithesis of glossy, ad saturated tourist maps that flood downtown, opting for a simple but elegant design with black ink and uncoated paper. Its initial print run of 4,000 copies will be circulated throughout May at local cafes, galleries, shops and public places. C:Charleston will be released bi-monthy with its next edition to be released in late June.
J.C. Tripp has a lengthy background in publishing and graphic design, working for ad agencies and publishers in New York City while publishing several small magazines including "Roam", an award winning travel and culture magazine. JCT Creative serves the needs of small business, with website design, identity and print design.
