Bordeaux Wine Regions Map Commissioned for Town and Country Magazine

Bordeaux Wine Regions Map

Town and Country magazine commissioned a map for their Bordeaux wine regions article. This particular map, the client asked for a hand drawn detailed map with intricate boarders which were needed to hold the text information for the different wine producing regions of Bordeaux.

The map had a simple color pallet which I was informed to take into consideration, the art director asked to create a red wine stain shape in this aesthetic, which was a new for me to execute, It required working with ink colours, to recreate a wine stain shape. The rest of the Colour Pallet was black with reds/burgundy’s to allude to the color of wine.

The map also had specific icons to be illustrated for the map, these were, a compass, the Landes Forest icon, Cognac District icon and Atlantic Ocean icon. I created a few different iterations of these icons, in the end, the icons. The different wine regions within the wine stain were assigned numbers from 1 to 20 and placed within the wine stain, which are easily identified from the break down of the information provided within the 2 information boxes, the left bank and the right bank boxes.
