Independence Mall Map Cover
This illustrated map is part of a press kit GPTMC created to promote the newly built expansions and the great historic sites on Independence Mall.
The map cover features Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776.
This is me with the framed copy of the map that GPTMC gave to Michael Nutter, Mayor of Philadelphia.
Process: I based the drawings on my own photos and observations, supplemented with satellite images from Google. My goal was to strike a balance of detail and find the visual essence of each place.
