An artistic way to experience urban geography: J-Storm Urban Maps are Live-Work Centerpieces and Cubicle-Art of the city you love.
Note, This project has moved to a different location. It's even better!! More cities and lower reward levels. Please re-back J-Storm Urban Maps at the following site:
My goal is combine art and geography for urban people, businesses and lifestyles. I aim to fill a void of decoration that expresses a passion for city, without having to resort to tourist stuff.
J-Storm Urban Maps fill this void and bring city pride into the conference rooms and neutral grey cubical walls of my fellow professional, urban, office-working neighbors. My cubicle, the busy FiDi streets, and my favorite broken parking meter are the source of inspiration for the J-Storm Urban Map Project. Please back/like/star/comment on this Kickstarter so that I can capture and distribute these elements in a tangible piece for all to enjoy..
To do this, and to perfect my design and "Urban Manufacturing" I humbly request your support on this project. With the backing, I plan to rent a work space with a few other Makers/Artists to buy a CNC, a Laser, and build a paint booth. Then I'll make more maps :-)
Just select the level of backing that you want. Later, we'll send a survey to pick options like color, city & tag charaters. Note: This is a soft-launch, and I'm still working on more cities. (So, if you are reading this sentence you are definitely one of the earliest viewers) I'll update this page when they are ready, so if you are interested in this for New York, Boston, Chigaco, Houston or any other major city - click the "Remind Me" button on the top right of this page so you'll be in the loop when your city comes out. Currently, only San Francisco is available but I'll add more soon!
Thank you for your attention - I hope you enjoyed the show!

J-Storm Urban Map (Large) - This is the real-deal Urban Map from the subway scene. It's 46" by 41" so it covers a very large space. It comes with 25 customized tags (character limit applies). This will default to the San Francisco neighborhoods if not specified by backer. Initially not available for shipping. This is bigger than your normal shipping sizes. Options will be available to pick up in the city, and I will have a few designated days to rent a truck and do drop-offs for backers in San Francisco. Depending on what the workspace is like and how many people back this, I might throw a party for all the backers of this size and everyone can pick up their maps then. This is not guaranteed yet though... Subtract $200 if you don't want the tags. Add $30 if you want the back painted too, so that it could be used as a hanging divider screen. Add $100 for a personalized delivery by Vespa anywhere north of Geary. Beep Beep :-)Estimated delivery:
