The design for this custom wedding map is in progress. It is a design for a couple who will wed in Washington, D.C. this spring. The bride liked the playfulness of maps with a hand drawn feel. I had great fun creating this map with little sketches of the church where the ceremony will the held, the white house, and the reception venue.
I've spent a bit of time in Washington, DC and am alway fascinated to see the pattern of streets, which reflect Pierre-Charles L'Enfant's 1791 plan for the city of Washington. This scheme of broad radiating avenues connecting significant focal points and gridded streets oriented north, south, east, and west is fascinating to see in two dimensions. A great city to map!
