”I lived in ...” MAP
I started this personal project as a way to remember the times I travelled and the places where I lived for a couple of weeks or months. The first map (42x28 cm) that I created is the one of Sundsvall, Sweden where I studied for five months and it was a very important moment of my life because it gave me the opportunity to grow not only as a person but also as a Designer. The process started with taking screenshots of the real map of the city, resizing it and put all the pieces together on an art board in Illustrator. From there, I started to make the roads and named them. It took me some time to find the right colour scheme for this map but after I find it, I started to draw the buildings and add details to the map with the stipple shading brush to give some texture to the drawing. In the next months I plan to bring this project to a bigger level and create more maps of places that I lived in (Italy, Belgium, Romania), each with individual colour schemes and buildings. Each place has a story. The main idea os this project is to put in the map the places that I have visited during my stay in Sundsvall, for example the lake where we met to make a bbq, the shop where I was buying the groceries, or the bus stop from where we were taking the bus to go in the city centre. Regarding the colour scheme, I wanted to use the colours of Sweden (yellow and blue) + additional colours. I used only one font, Copperplate.
