Long before there was GPS, travelers relied on maps and compasses to find their way through uncharted land or sea. Ancient maps were works of art, designed with the most expensive ink and decoration by the most talented scribes. Maps provide a detailed layout of the area with symbols to help orient you to nearby surroundings. With the use of street signs and landmarks, maps make it fun and easy to explore a new city or get to that meeting on time.
The art of wayfinding still exists in the modern era. Foldable, pocket-sized maps make great giv-aways, even for those who prefer to use their smartphones to get directions. A map that fits in your pocket is never subject to cellular disturbance or "dead zones", and the right design can make a map an appealing accessory. How do you want your customers to find you? Handheld maps add a personalized touch that you can give to your clients during meetings and at conferences. It's a business card with an invitation to reconnect in the future.
Like the scribes of old, map making can be an art unto itself. Our staff believe in great design and smart strategies, and we work with you to achieve your goals. Do you want your map to resemble a treasure map? We can do that. Do you want a map with clean, crisp lines and vivid colors? We can do that, too
