Havana.

Just the word brings to mind so many images. 

Old Cars, Cigars, Sunshine, Color. But what does the actual landscape of the city feel like? My Latin American travelling design partner David Hennessy spent several weeks here rubbing elbows with the locals, and getting their take on the most essential parts of the city. My favorite detail: The Ice cream pavilion Heladería Coppelia, a jewel of the city. 

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.

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. I 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.
