We will be making maps in Illustrator, labeling them and end up with a completely functional work of art.Illustrator is perfect for map making. During this project you will also learn more about the layers palette.
For our next project we will be making a map. The subject of the map is up to you. The map could be a of a product, thing or place.
A map is a visual representation of an area. You need to create a visual representation of a place, product, or other object or idea.
When brainstorming think beyond just a map of the United States. The more solid idea would be the amount of Starbucks consumed in each state or the moose population in the United States. Go beyond just a place or thing; add a subject to the representation of a place.
