Antarctica isn't in Outer Space, but it might as well be. I think this is the most otherworldly terrestrial formation. Nobody had really explored it until the 20th century, and even today, it's very difficult to access. It also occupies the area surrounding the south pole, a very confusing vantage point. Look at it on Google maps: It's completely incomprehensible. We broke it down nice and simply.

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 prints 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.
