Made in Arctic is the annual tourist business forum for the people involved in developing tourism processes. They are entrepreneurs, business community, municiples, farmers, cafe and restaurant managers. It was founded in 2014 and the second one meeting where we had been invited was discussing the gastronomic topic, so the event had two titles: "Made in Arctic" following with "The Taste of Arctic". Design concept was to show the handcrafted style of everything being made in Murmansk, like it usually is everywhere, when there is yet not enough finances and everything is held in the hands of enthusiasts.
It was a tough time to make such a large hand-drawn map from skratch without making rough mistakes in geography. But we had to stick to the concept of the hand crafted style and nobody promised it would be an easy path to begin.
