Have you ever found yourself sucked into a map, dreaming of places you've been, remembering a journey and inspired to travel. Too many times I caught myself wondering how to illustrate a memory in an innovative way.
Thus Map Lovers,
"Customised Maps as Art" was born. Maps displayed in a beautiful,
funky, designer way, personalised, to tell your story and show your photos.
Retaining all the correct geographical information, they give context and
perspective to an experience or future dream. They include a collection of
neutral signature maps designed to fit into anyone’s world.
These artworks range from world maps, to routes covered on foot, flown in hot air balloon or sailed across seas. Display your best photos in an unforgettable way. Maybe you rode the Argus or captured the sunset on a beautiful beach. They awaken the discoverer and seem to open up opportunity and a promise of freedom. Map Lovers reflect your adventurous soul and leave you full of excitement.
The artworks are an interesting synergy between the art and framing. They consist of a picture (photo, painting, map or illustration) and information or an illustration printed onto glass. They are then framed to create a cool dimension with shadows falling from the glass onto the artwork in the background.
We have used LED lighting on some artworks as well as augmented reality to bring them to life.
clients range from photographers displaying their best work to collages of
one’s life. We are currently working on a project for a client that sailed the
Red Sea 10 years ago. It will plot the route they took in a 1 year voyage and
match photos up to interesting stops they made along the way. Another
client is creating a collage of his son’s life overlaid by the world showing
when and where he has been, this will be his 18th birthday gift. Our clients
are people who love more than just the aesthetics of art but appreciate
Using the top printers and framers has led to a high quality, sophisticated, sassy product. We work closely with ORMS to maintain authenticity and great craftsmanship. We print on a range of beautiful papers and play with the versatility of Plexiglas, choosing from an enormous range of framing options to pick one that accentuates the work.
The effects and possibilities are endless and with your story they make for a unique, stylish piece.
