A Map Design

Our Process

Understanding your needs is key to making a great product. Before we jump in, we listen. Then we can respond quickly, remain flexible, and design appropriately.

Research

Research takes creativity, good judgment, persistence, and access to large amounts of information—all of which we offer in generous supply. Naturally, it’s important for the maps we create to have the most current and authoritative content available. No matter how obscure or demanding a search may be, we are always up to the challenge.

Compile & Design

The design process is exciting and creative. Whether you ask us to start from scratch or work within an existing style, we bring our passion, enthusiasm, and care to every piece we create.

Produce your design

Produce

We love producing work that exceeds expectations. We employ highly efficient production and organization methods throughout the process. An experienced project manager with an open ear and a penchant for order is assigned to each project.

Verify The Information

Verify

Accuracy is critical for published material. That is what makes a thorough editing protocol so important. Everything we create is reviewed and verified, including labels and other text, thematic information, project specifications, and overall effectiveness.

Deliver your map

Deliver

We typically supply proofs at various stages throughout the process. For print-based projects, we generally use a PDF workflow for interim proofs, and deliver working files upon final approval. Our high-resolution printers enable us to provide hard copies as needed, color-calibrated to match output from web or offset printers.
