A crossover of modern maps and playful colours to create beautiful abstract art prints of any place in the world.  This is a project that celebrates the joy of travel and the uniqueness of every city, with a range of hand picked colour-balanced themes to choose from you can find a style that fits perfectly in with any room. 

What do you get

A high quality, beautifully detailed custom made poster with the location and colour scheme of your choice.  Posters are printed on museum quality archival paper in a range of sizes that are ready to pop into a frame to hang.  A pin sharp resolution preserves the amazing details of every location, so it looks great both from afar and up-close. Please scroll down to view a selection of examples and close-up views.

Customisation

  • Any Location: It could be your home town or perhaps a favorite city you've traveled to, or even have your map centered on a specific address! Backers will have access to a special Map Designer webpage, please see the bottom of the page for a preview.
  • Colour Themes:  Choose between vintage, modern and classic colour themes.  Themes will be finalized and sent along with map previews to backers once funding is over, ensuring that there's a range to suit your taste/room decor. 

 

 

A big thank you in advance for your support and we'll strive to ensure the highest quality prints are made.

Here are some examples below with various colour themes applied.

 Map Designer

Backers will have access to a simple-to-use Map Designer that's accessible from any web browser, this will let them choose the exact region and preview for each print they order.  Here's an example of how it works (2MB gif):

 

  • Type in a place
  • Make adjustments by dragging the map to a spot you like
  • Choose from 3 zoom levels (most of the examples above use the STANDARD setting)
  • UPDATE: you can choose between portrait and landscape orientations for each print

The Full Process 

We really want to make it simple and fun for you, so we've broken it down into a 2-step process once the campaign ends.  This is an upgraded process with the aim to give you more choice and to help make sure you know what you're going to get :)

The above process is for each print you order, so for example if you order 2 prints, you'll get to choose a different map region and colour themes for each one - and then you'll receive 2 Preview Galleries  to pick one from each.

Variation - It's your choice

Since everyone is different, we'd like you give you the option to choose the variation you like best!

Here's a gif to demonstrate 5 variations for a theme that you can pick from in your Preview Gallery:

Rewards

Apart from your choice of size, there is also the option to back multiple prints, and these can be a different location and theme for each one.  A discount has been applied an extra thank you for backing a set of 2 or more. ♥ 

Prints work great when lined up in a row to make your own gallery wall!

Risks and challenges

There is little risk to this project as the main complexity was in creating the software which is now complete and tested. The printing partner has been selected and we're ready to go!
