HI! Thanks for your interest in my contest. I'd like to have a typographic map made for the small coastal town where I grew up. These maps/graphics have become popular recently for cities around the world.
I have attached materials that are necessary for you to review to complete the contest, as well as reference materials for inspiration, including typographic maps of London, Boston, and San Francisco. I am looking for a thoughtfully executed design that is unique in its own right.
"File 1" includes the map of the town to be drawn. You will notice that each neighborhood has been delineated and a key is used to match the name with the place. Use the key to match the neighborhood names with the proper geography.
"File 3" includes a typographic map of London for your reference
"File 4" includes a typographic map of Boston for your reference
"File 6" an aerial of the town. showing the relationship to the coast.
I have included some principles/considerations as you think about your approach.
1). Type should be legible
2). Type should be the defining element of each neighborhood
3). You will see that the town is separated by a canal. This canal should be depicted as a body of water. Similar to how the River Thames is done in the London graphic that I have provided as reference.
Thanks again for your interest! Looking forward to seeing the submissions!
