Elba, Alabama | Skillshare Projects



Elba, Alabama

  1. Why am I making this map? For fun? A client? a 
    gift? To showcase my favorite places? Etc.

I am creating this map for the Elba Chamber of Commerce and the City of Elba to help promote the small town where I reside.  I want to show recreational venues, shopping, dining and lodging - things that would appeal to visitors.

2.  Why am I the expert to create this map?

I'm not an expert - just someone interesting in learning this skill, so this is where I've started.  I have not been hired or asked to do this, but I am an advocate for my small town and like to engage in things that will help it to prosper. 

3.  Who is my target audience?

Visitors in the areas surrounding Elba, Alabama.

4.  What level of detail do I need to include? (Names, addresses, contact info, street names, website, hours, descriptions, color coding etc.).

Venue Names, Street Names, Color Coding (dining, lodging, shopping, recreation), Addresses, Phone Numbers and Websites.

5.  Do I want my final project to be printed or digital? 

Printed with the ability to scale down for digital use also, but I'm going to design it high resolution, so that it will print well...

6.  How is it going to be used/ held? What other constraints do I need to keep in mind moving forward? (Note: type can be smaller on printed maps than when viewed on web).  “Dear classmates, I need your help/expertise/ guidance on how to.....”

It will be used on Facebook, the city's website and printed out for distrubution at City Hall, the Chamber of Commerce office and local businesses.
