Barcelona has a very clever octogonal block structure, so we decided to use that shape as the composition of the Barcelona map. We had long drawn-out consultations with native Catalonians to make sure this map captures the essence of my favorite city to visit. This is a collaboration with Ryan Wilson. 

FRAMING
Have you noticed that frame shops never go out of business? There's a reason. It's a highly specialized skill that requires individual attention. I recommend using your local framer.

Alternatively, frameusa.com has standard sized frames with many options. 

ABOUT LETTERPRESS PRINTING
Letterpress is a very complicated and expensive printing method that I am obsessed with. All Letterpress are slammed with 600 pounds of pressure, creating a deep, tactile texture. The ink gets embedded into the thick soft paper so it won't fade within your lifetime. Read more about letterpress printing here.

ABOUT THE IDEA
So why all the circles? Research indicates that GPS's are hindering our ability to create mental maps of our surroundings. My maps aim to install a "Map from the Mind" for each city, simplifying structures and districts in the simplest terms. Each design is taken as a new challenge, using the knowledge of locals to create a map that is both beautiful and useful.
