Before online maps and sat-navs, the humble paper map was the go-to resource for your geographical needs. Nowadays with admittedly more compact and practical solutions, the paper map is slowly becoming a thing of the past.
For almost a decade now, a small team of dedicated designers have been producing some of the most beautifully designed and crafted maps. The Future Mapping Company. Their designs celebrate and elevate the map, creating stunning pieces for display in the home or office.
“Our team combines a love of cartography, a passion for the printing process and a drive for great design to create this distinctive and stylish take on a well-known form.”
We simply love these maps! There are various designs available ranging from city centres to the entire world. The use of bold colours and clean fonts create a refreshing update to the humble map.
The process of producing these maps is complex and meticulous. From the initial data collection through to the design and editing, and finally the skilful lithographic printing.
‘We compose every detail of these maps in our studio in East London and they are printed to our high specification by specialists in the United Kingdom and Italy.’
(You can see the full details of their process on their site to really appreciate how much work goes into creating these maps).
We look forward to seeing more great maps from this talented team!
