Citymap of Utrecht - Illustration
For Global real estate services provider 'Savills' asked me to make an illustration to create awareness for their new Utrecht office. They wanted the illustration to be printed on postcards which would be send to their clients etc. At first they wanted a 'basic' citymap of Utrecht but later on they asked me if i could give it a 'Rietveld' twist. Rietveld probably needs no introduction, he's famous for the work he did in the art movement 'De Stijl' and his ties to Utrecht are the fact that he was born and raised there. He also lived in Utrecht his whole life.
After finishing the illustration we decided to put a logo of 'Savills' on the map to point out their new office in the new WTC in Utrecht.
Below are some work in progress screenshots of this illustration.
Final result, printed on postcard (A5)
