Maraphon Map
Dark times of communication map creating
Sometimes we just can't say "no" when we're being persistently asked about drawing a map for awesome people like Maraphon Infrastructure. This is mostly a bright piece of art, than a real handy map for engineers, mostly because of its sizes, made to keep all the details visible. We also printed a limited edition of a glowing in the dark version of the map with addition of white phosphor, which replaced all the whites.

Client: Maraphon Wirelines Infrastructure

Work: map design, illustrations

These are the set of stickers, that you stick to the map to point the your personal most valuable points on it. Not sure if everybody makes good use of them, actually:
Map is full of well hidden easter eggs and inviting for a deep study. Which adds that personal human touch to the almost techincal sort of map type, which you do not await when you get it. We've added the magical vibe that makes you want not only to check technical possibilities, but also to travel.

All the roads had been drawn purely from skratch. That makes it very easy to fully recolor it or make cosmetic changes.

Here are some behind-the-curtains work in progress with Maraphon team below:
