illustrated Map Perfume Society London Map Black and White Line drawing
illustrated Map Perfumes Society was looking to commission a map of London for an event they were holding. The commission involved creating a detailed map of London, focusing on East London, Central and parts of West London. The important details involved creating well know places and location, which people could recognise. The map should be illustrative and practical at the same time with anyone looking at it, being able to use it to navigate or plan with.
The London illustrated map has hand-drawn detailed landmarks such as The Shard, The Gherkin, Tower Bridge, Big Ben, The London Eye. Different areas are highlighted with hand-drawn typography which is crafted to meld between the landmarks and objects within the map.
The Map also contained a key of shopping locations and department stores within the main well-known shopping areas of London with those details printed on the back of the map. The map is also foldable, which was an important factor. The map was part of a boxed gift set given to guests, along with the map; you also received samples of perfumes.
