Charlottetown map!

Posted on | April 7, 2014 | 1 Comment

This is the project that I have been so excited to share here… but couldn’t, until now!

I was asked by Discover Charlottetown to create an illustrated walking map of Charlottetown. It will be used for their activity guide, as a tear-away walking map and a larger version will also be displayed in 8 kiosks around town (pics to come soon!).

I was completely intimated by this project, and debated about taking it on. Then one day I had a light bulb moment. This is the kind of job I want to be doing, dream of doing! So I put my fears aside and dove in. I hope locals find it depicts Charlotetown well, and that it lures visitors to explore… but mostly I hope my love for this beautiful town shines through.

(Postcard versions of this map and my PEI map will be available for sale soon. I’ll keep you posted!)

    That is AMAZING! Congratulations! Your map is gorgeous! I will alert everyone i know in PEI how gorgeous this is. And will also order the guide, since we’ve been thinking of going.

    i hate the be the thorn in someone’s side, but “Discover” in French isn’t “Découver” … It should be “Découvrir” … Might want to have that checked?
