A follow up from the 2016 Christchurch map, the Auckland Typography map is a new print beautifully representing central Auckland’s streets, motorways, rail lines, parks and more in flowing street names and places. Check it out below:
This design was more ambitious and time consuming than the last, covering a much larger area and including more streets than ever. New features not present in the first map included the locations of universities, hospitals and several popular locations. Each piece of text was carefully handcrafted and placed to avoid overlapping and ensure clarity of street names. A particular challenge was Auckland’s complex motorway system, but I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. What do you think?
