Mapping London

Client: Personal work

Map design

The idea for these maps came from personal interest in walking, urban nature and parks during the time London was about to be declared National Park City. Inspired by the concept I illustrated couple of maps depicting green walks through London parks.

The idea was picked up from social media by Mapping London’s editor Ollie O’Brien, who wrote an endorsing blog post reviewing the maps.

Mapping London really likes the strong design elements of these maps – greens and blues, and plenty of white space to present a decluttered look. You might know some or all of these parks already, if you live in London – but did you know you can link them together efficiently in this way?

Later these whimsical maps became prerequisite to London Greenground Maps.
