Les Echos Magazine Map of Holland
Les Echos, is a well-known magazine in France, I was contacted by my illustration agent Hugo. The Client commissioned me to create a map of Holland, and in an illustrative way to incorporate the logos of companies of which the head offices are based in Holland and their cities, this illustrations would accompany an article inside of Les Echos.
The brief detailed to show the logos of the companies and the cities they are based in Holland. The brief was also not to present your normal typical imagery of Holland. I focused my drawings on the interesting architecture of the cities of Holland, where the large companies named in the article and map were based such as the interesting townhouses of Amsterdam, The International Court of Justice, at The Hague.
The drawn architecture for each of the cities should not distract from the logos of the companies which are the feature of the maps and the article. Each of the hand drawn elements were then placed and arranged within photoshop, which made certain elements easy to apply colour, as the client required a colour scheme which was complimentary and highlighted the feature of the companies and the cities.
