These are some examples of projects where I’ve redone something.
I am showing the original compared to the new result I came up with.
Boat Show Maps
The before and after example that jumps out most to me is boat show maps including but not limited to this one. Before I made my first illustrated boat show map for this 2010 boat show this was the industry standard. What they were using was a fine CAD drawing and has a necessary function, just not as a guest map. I improved maps for many other boat shows as well and raised the bar in the industry for what is considered a minimum acceptable standard of quality of aesthetics in maps and informational graphics.
AFTER (Continued Improvements):
A Gardens Map
I started from scratch on this rather than use the original for any form of reference.
A Town Map
The original was fine, but I used an illustrative approach to give it more life.
I brought in some illustration and more color to this as well as my own style.
A Tropical Resort Map
This was made into a more exciting illustrated map and a supplemental map with more detailed labeling.
A Rack Card
I took the opportunity to do some illustration
