For McCool Travel’s 156th travel interview, I am happy to introduce you to Anton Diaz of Our Awesome Planet. I met Anton and his wife ...
One great thing about travels around the world is buying gifts to remind myself of the cool places I have visited. However, I pack light and rarely buy trip souvenirs other than decks of cards. When at home, I sometimes shop for items reminding me of my travels, such as globes or t-shirts.
Recently, the founder and artist of Modern Map Art offered me a review item of my choice so that I can share my thoughts with the McCool Travel nation.
Modern Map Art
The artist’s words:
I started using city grids and imagery to put together with colors that represented that city to create posters and art that would look good in anyone’s home or office. We started with cities we were familiar with here in the US and we’re going to expand to cities all over the world. Our designs are elegant and modern, with a touch of nostalgia for anyone that has a connection to the city.
She offered me a print of a specific city mentioned in a published McCool Travel article. I instead asked for a print of Washington, DC and gave it to my daughter to decorate her college apartment. My daughter moves the print to different locations and will permanently affix it after buying a frame. She loves it!
I like this travel themed product because it is unique, attractive, and a conversation piece. Modern Map Art converts sky view map grids of familiar world cities into instant art—in striking black and white or with a touch of appropriate color.
In addition to prints and posters, Modern Map Art produces the images on iPhone cases and pillows. Modern Map Art has a database of more than 500 cities and will also create custom map art upon request.
All orders have free shipping to US addresses.
