I was recently contacted by Sarasota Magazine with a request for an illustrated map of Venice Beach (Florida, not California). The concept were pretty straightforward; highlight all of the focal points of the beach as spot illustrations. Of course they provided me with a list of the relevant focal points and page layout requirements. They did have a rather tight deadline, but it was manageable.
I did the illustration part and Gigi Ortwein did the design work after I was done. Gigi is an awesome designer I have known since my days at Ringling College of Art, so I was excited to see what she would do. Of course I wasn’t disappointed and I look forward to working with her again.
The map appears in Sarasota Magazine so go check it out.
