Everything Long Beach "[a]n elegant solution that is both functional and beautiful"

I just moved back to Southern California from New York City with my girlfriend. While I'm from LA, she's not, and she's having a hard time finding her way around. I couldn't figure out why.

She never had a problem navigating the subways in New York, why should LA be different?

And then I remembered that when I first moved to New York, the thing that helped me learn the subway lines was to think of them as being like the freeways.

That's when it clicked! I could make her a map of Southern California using the visual language of the NYC Subway System.

So that's my project.

It's a map of the freeways, highways, and MetroRail presented in the style of the iconic NYC Subway Map.

I'm bringing this to Kickstarter so that I can fund the print run of 500 copies.

The posters will be printed at my neighborhood print shop here in Long Beach Fresh Prints Design. The posters will be full color prints on 24" by 36" 100lb Book with Aqueous Coating. The amount I'm asking for will be to cover the cost of printing and to pay for packaging and shipping. Shipping will be included in the cost.
