These pocket-sized books were a way to repurpose online content from SmudgeEats.com.au in a travel-friendly booklet. The concept behind the cover design was to create a collectable series featuring a signature spot colour and illustrative talent from artists who reside in each city.

“The Smudge Eats Sydney book was a dream job! Susan provided great art direction while also letting me explore my own creative ideas and visual style. The finished book was the result of a truly collaborative experience and I’m super happy with how it turned out.” – Jess Cruickshank
