There are a few moments in the function of our bodies that I find totally unbelievably magical. In the lungs, it's the Alveoli. These little sacs are how oxygen gets attached to the blood. It's remarkably important and the entire reason our lungs have this shape. It's all about getting the air down through the bronchioles and straight to the alveoli. We put the ol' Archie spin on this one, giving lots of space to explaining the most important story of the organ.

A collaboration with David Hennessy.

8"x8" Letterpress print. 

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. We 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.
