I´m working in German Film productions, so I have to get permits for every location that we want to shoot at.
I work in Illustrator to do the maps and use Google maps as reference. I add the road layer, building layer, symbol layer etc.
I’m David – web designer at Symphony Online, this community project got me thinking about a cool way to show some of our website stats since launch.

Hello, I work for SNL Financial in the news department. I manage the production department and I sometimes get to create infographics for articles posted online.
This particular map I did for the HR Department. The challenge was to depict the various points of data from our offices around the world. I really enjoyed putting this one together.
I learned graphic design at the advent of computer graphics, and have only recently gotten into vector drawing. The company where I work recently had a party to celebrate its 30th anniversary, and I created this map to send along with the invitations. It doesn't have a huge amount of detail as most of our guests are familiar with the area and/or have visited before.
My employer threw a 30th anniversary party recently and I was tasked with making a location/site map.
Since most of our guests know the area, a tremendous amount of detail wasn't required, so it was fun to throw in something like the ferries and compass rose.
I have a background in graphic design (from way back), but Illustrator is still fairly new to me. This map was a blast to create!

I am a cartographer and graphic designer who designs all of my maps in Illustrator. Most of my map work is created for wedding packages. This is one example of my wedding work.
I love creating maps, looking at maps, thinking about maps. This is a great Workshop!

I used the tutorials on the site to help with the map and the pins (thanks for those). The infographic is based on education in Thailand (Where I live and work). Specifically on the failings going on right now.
