World Map Scarf

  1. Why am I making this map? 
    Im making this map because I'm planning an around the world trip and have really been enjoying looking at the big world map on my wall. I've been thinking about how nice it would be to have a silk scarf with a world map on it, but fond there are no nice ones online, they are all unclear and low quality.  I would love to design one that is both creative yet accurate and informative. 

  2. Why am I the expert to create this map?
    I am a fashion designer and have produced scarves in the past and I've had a long sebatical from it but once apon a time I used to draw and paint pretty damn well.  I also use the Adobe Suite on a professional level nearly daily so pretty confident I can pull this whole thing together.  

  3. Who is my target audience?
    Fashion lovers, world travellers and dreamers. 

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

  5. Do I want my final project to be printed or digital? 
    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).
    Printing on silk and wool to be worn as a scarf.  I want it to be at least 90cm wide but hopefully much larger like 120cm and 160cm long.

  6. “Dear classmates, I need your help/expertise/ 
    guidance on how to.....”
    I'll let you know...
