We talk about all kinds of web and graphic design on our blog, but one of my favourite posts was something slightly unexpected: beautiful maps. Today, I wanted to bring that subject back, but with a twist. Instead of showcasing beautiful, elegant maps, I wanted to take a look at heavily stylised, fun and creative world maps. Maps that deviate from the truth – they don’t have to be accurate, they just have to be bold, attention-grabbing and interesting. These world map designs may have been created for a magazine, or for a website showcasing areas that products are shipped to, or regions that a company has offices in, or for any number of reasons where a fun and colourful map would bring the design to life and inject some personality. This showcase ranges from complex and detailed world maps to ultra-minimalist art – and I hope that you find some inspiration in each one. Each of these world maps have been created by a very talented designer and are the result of hard work, creativity and imagination. And as always, if you know of any other creative and fun world maps, I’d love to hear about them in the comments at the end. Hopefully you’ve found our showcase of colourful, vibrant and creative world map designs interesting, and that it’s given you some inspiration for how to add a splash of excitement and fun into your own artwork. As always, if you know of any other particularly eye-catching world maps (especially if you’ve designed it!), we’d love to hear about it in the comments below. Source.
