Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.

…likely to add a pin to her beautiful world travel map!

World Travel MapSoft, warm, and mysterious, like the vanquished heat at the end of the desert day, toward dusk. I will customize the title, if you wish. It comes mounted on foam board and ready for framing. I thought a steel gray or black frame would work nicely!

Note Casablanca is on this detail… !

Yes! In case you wondered, it is the perfect Mother’s Day gift! Mothers travel, too!

The colors are subtle and blend with many decors.

My hope is that these designs evoke memories and dreams. They certainly have for me!

 

 

Send me concept ideas! I’d love to hear what people think!

Try ruling the world, sometime…

PrintWe are moving into one of the seasons of travel. I’ve tasked myself to design some very unique world maps to highlight travels. Yes, unique is one, but they have to be nice, too!

Many of you who are familiar with design may agree with me when I say our creations are like babies. No one design stands higher than the other. Although, there are a few prodigies that shine the way for the rest, I’m thinking.

My Skyline map uses a soft color palette set on a composite of over twenty of our world’s most familiar city skylines. With a mix of passport stamps above, this map expresses beauty and evokes excitement for the open road. This comes mounted on foam board, and includes pushpins to mark your travels!

I wanted to create something that would be truly eye catching, using saturation and contrasting colors. The effect is stunning!

This, too, has a good number of cities located, is mounted on foam board, and includes pushpins for locating places you’ve been, a loved one has seen, or want to go in the future!

Although there are many more maps to show you, I’ve got to stop myself… One more!

CoastlineDetailThis is not a pushpin map, but a beautiful wall map showing physical features, ocean features, as well as major cities. The colors that are warm and subtle, to blend with neutral settings.

It’s a bit larger than many of my others. It is also a more rectangular projection, rather than my more traditional oval. I had brought a lot of focus on type placement on this design. Labels were carefully placed and given an “organic” feel.

Sometimes pictures can say more than words. Wedding season and graduation is coming up! Consider maps as a lifetime gift for your world explorer!
