These are some examples of projects where I’ve redone something. All are before and after illustration and map projects.
I am showing the original compared to the new result I came up with.
Boat Show Maps
The before and after illustration and map projects examples 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
