Southern Boating Magazine Article

The article above appears in the February 2016 Issue of Southern Boating Magazine (page 87). The text appears below as well.

“Navigating Miami’s multiple venues is easier when you use a map. If you’re at Yachts Miami Beach – formerly The Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show – the man behind those maps is John Potter of Escape Key Graphics (escapekeygraphics.com), who created his first boat show map for the 201 Fort Lauderdale Int’l. Boat Show. It wasn’t long before the creative concept spread. Less intimidating than site plans and more easier to follow than an aerial photography, Potter’s maps now grace the Stuart Boat Show, St. Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show in Florida and International Boat Shows like Newport, Palm Beach and Panama. His work on these shows frequently extends to many maps such as detailed area maps and transit maps. Potter’s maps can also be seen beyond the yachting industry in theme parks, resorts, wildlife sanctuaries, municipalities, campuses and gardens including Flamingo Gardens, Dinosaur World parks or The Dover International Speedway.”

Powerboating in Paradise

Although the bulk of my work is maps and illustration I do some page layout as well. These layouts were for a recent issue of Powerboating in Paradise magazine. As in most page layout situations there was a lot of collaboration and I would like to thank Editor/Publisher Stu Jones for the opportunity and everything else and Art Director Juan Carlos Grisales for everything.

You can see the whole issue below.

Learn more about Powerboating in Paradise magazine on their website and contact me if you’re interested in having me work on your publication.
