Featured Map Artist: Little Leaf Creative

Posted by

Every week, I will bring you my favorite maps from around the world! They will range from analytical to artistic maps, created through a variety of ways (not only GIS).

My first featured artist in this section is Kirsty Crowder, founder of Little Leaf Creative, an illustration and design shop based out of York, England.

Kirsty creates stunning illustrations of her surroundings, from the historical buildings in York to the Cornish Coastlines! I love her work because it is very minimalistic, adding just splash of color in key areas and leaving black outlines + white space whenever possible.

If you browse through her collection, you’ll see that her pieces tie in together so well, like one cohesive display. This is because she opts for the same fonts, as well as colors within the same spectrum (i.e. pastels) and repeats them in different pieces. 

If you are producing a series of maps, following these tips will help you create an aesthetically pleasing and connected collection!

Keep mapping along,
