The team at the London/Edinburgh/London Audax cycle event required some clear and distinctive maps for a website they were developing.

With a desire to steer clear of a generic looking Google Map and without the need for perfect geographical accuracy (the maps would be for promotion not for final route planning!) I designed “Route” and “Control” maps for site visitors to enjoy!

I chose to steer away from the obvious green land and blue sea choosing instead brown hues for the land and a steel grey for the water. The red outline and dashed effect complement the web design and yellow was chosen as a contrasting colour.

Initially for use on the web but with thought to future us in print promotion, the maps were designed in vector for for unlimited scalability without loss of clarity.

Just a short write up, but the maps can be seen below.
