I spent my college years exploring the rugged peaks and pristine valleys of Colorado.

Two big memories: The toughest hike I ever did was Pikes Peak, a 24-mile haul that left me blistered and hungry. The scariest moment I ever had was trudging through Independence Pass, between Leadville and Aspen, one of the scariest and most dangerous roads in the world. I love this mile-high state.

ABOUT THE IDEA
Information is more fun to read when it's beautiful. I've designed these charts and maps with hours of research, reassembling data into a brain-friendly aesthetic. I edit the information significantly, avoiding the "dazzle" effect which occurs when our eyes are battered with too much information. Letterpress makes it even more gorgeous.

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.

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.
