Custom Design Map
I recently completed a commissioned project. It was a delightful undertaking. I designed a custom map for a couple who was married in and is living in Baltimore. As frequent readers of this blog know, I'm an enthusiastic supporter of Baltimore. Having lived in the city, for a couple of years, I fell in love. So it was a delighted to recall familiar neighborhoods and favorite spots as I executed the map.
The map is a digital design, which will be printed as a 24"x30" poster at a local art store using their high quality printing process. The map depicts Baltimore's 225+ neighborhoods. It also features digital sketches of the couple's favorite Baltimore spots--restaurants, bars, the place they were married.
I was rather captivated by this idea, an extension of some of the wedding maps I have designed. I hope I will have the opportunity to complete more of these custom maps. It also got me thinking about future projects I would like to complete--perhaps, a series of maps documenting the places that tell the story of a person's life in a place--the places where a person lives and works, their favorite hidden places to visit, the place they fall in love or have their hearts broken.What would be on your custom designed map?
