Little maps for locals and visitors

Arts & Fashion Map 2003

This was my first map of arts galleries and fashion stores in Dunedin. There was a great response to this little map. The map folded down to just 95mm x 100mm, the right size for 'pocket or purse'. 10,000 printed and distributed.

f*INK Map 2002 - detail

This 2002 f*INK map was printed using four spot colours: cyan, cream, brown, and dark blue. It would have been easier for us (and the printers) to print process colours (cmyk), but we liked the quality the spot separations gave. Film and plate preparation by Hughes Lithographics. Printing by Tablet Colour Print. Such amazingly friendly and helpful people to work with in each of these companies. The extensive use of icons was probably a bit over the top. Donald McPherson contributed extensively to this edition, tramping the streets to check names, climbing steps to see where led to. Donald is a Dunedin musician, view hispage on Bandcampandbuy his music.
