In the spring of 2019 I was contacted by an inspiring woman, who lives in Frankfurt, Germany. She told me that she and her neighbours want to bring all the people in their neighbourhood together near a small building that was going to be the center point of their activities. She knew that I was making colorful city maps and asked me to help them with a map of their neighbourhood.
I was so happy, because I have always loved maps and in this case it was a map that was supposed to bring people together and spark joy in their neighbourhood.
So after several emails they said that they like the design! And after several weeks I saw my map on the wall of this small building!
I have never thought that I will design a map which will be placed on a building 🙂
They organised parties, events and workshops near it.
Maps could bring people together! Nowadays, when we use only digital mapping apps, it’s clear more than ever that maps have a new role in our lives – to bring joy, to remind us our birthplace, our home or our country.
