I love food and am always looking to share my favorite restaurants. While I already blog about many of my favorite spots (erineatseverything.wordpress.com), I thought it might be neat to also create some visual representations of some of the places near my house.
Why am I making this map? For fun? A client? A gift? To showcase my favorite places? Etc.
For guests! There's nothing that makes me sadder than someone having a meal they didn't enjoy. NYC is a bit overwhelming and visitors should feel confident that they're going someplace tasty!
Why am I the expert to create this map?
I constantly photograph and make notes about the places I've been- plus I love to try new things!
Who is my target audience?
Anyone who loves great food, doesn't want to spend a lot of money and just needs a little help around the NYC area.
Do I want my final project to be printed or digital? How is going to be used/held? What other constraints do I need to keep in mind moving forward?
I would like to do something printed, but it'd be great to have it in a format that could also be uploaded and printed.
What level of detail do I need to include? (Names, addresses, contact info, street names, website, hours, descriptions, color coding, etc.)
I think just enough so that someone could find the restaurants- so major cross streets should be sufficient.
Dear class, I need your help/expertise/guidance on how to.....
How to make this informative but also visually appealing.
