Map Out The World Illustration Project
How it started:
How awesome would it be to have an illustrated map of every country in the world? Very awesome! One day I woke up to this dream of creating maps of all our beautiful countries of the world. First it was only a dream and a crazy idea. But this idea turned into a real project. Map Out The World has come to life!
Over the next 2 years I will post an illustrated map of every single country of this world. Which means that there will be 2 maps released every week (Monday and Friday) in alphabetical order on Instagram, Twitter and my website.
Creating a Map:
I follow a certain color palette where I use a limited number of colors for each map. The icons, trees, typography and texture are all hand-drawn. I avoid using pre-installed fonts.
Before I start a map I do some research. I want to show a mixture of special places, food, culture, architecture, people and wildlife in each map to highlight the diversity of each country.
