Illustrated map for the University of Cambridge

I am very happy to announce that I have been working for the past few months on an exciting project for the University of Cambridge. 

I was approached by Cambridge and asked to create an illustrated campus map of the university and the surrounding city, to be used as the main display and navigation for a ‘virtual open day’ platform on their website. The university found that prospective students often struggled to understand how the colleges and buildings sit within the city, with no central ‘campus’ as such, but a collection of academic and pastoral facilities knitted into the city fabric. The illustrated campus map highlights the colleges, university facilities and places of interest through individual hand drawn illustrations overlaid on a geographically accurate road map. Presenting the city and the academic buildings in this way gives prospective students a tangible overview of how the two co-exist, without having to visit it in person. With such a variety of beautiful buildings and pieces to illustrate, I loved working on this project!

The map is now complete and the ‘Virtual Open Days’ platform is set to be launched on their website Summer 2020.
