Lions, Tigers, and Bears, oh my!

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

I'm going to design a zoo map. For myself, and as a creative exercise. I'm a huge animal affectionato and love the idea of it being highly illustrative — perhaps it's more of a printed souvenir than a wayfinding piece (showing bathrooms etc).

  • Why am I the expert to create this map?

I've been to many zoos! But besides that, I'm not.

  • Who is my target audience?

All zoo visitors!

  • 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? (Note type can be smaller on printed maps than when viewed on web)


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

Haven't figured out yet...

  • Dear class, I need your help/expertise/guidance on how to.....

Don't even know what questions to ask yet! Hopefully it will come to me.

Here are my handdrawn maps:
