Reinvent Your Community: A Beginner's Guide to Digital Map Making

Hello everyone, I am creating my first Skillshare class and am excited to share my love of map making!

In my class, I will teach basic digital map making using Adobe Illustrator. Together, we will recreate a dull map to reveal a colorful, lively community!

Maps are utilized every day all around the world. Many communities, travel agencies and theme parks all display maps for the use of guests, residents or visitors to help them locate places of interest. Unfortunately, many of these maps lack energy, are sloppily thrown together and/or are of poor quality. 

With this class we will create a digital masterpiece that will not only be delightful to the eye, but will also be easy to use and understand; an example of how all maps should be!

I will be working on the rest of my class, including a class outline and would love to hear any suggestions or tips!

Thank you!
