map | Skillshare Projects




Hi my name is Isabelle, i think handmade maps are really cute and wanted to take this class just for fun. I'm a stay at home mom, scrapbooker, amateur photographer I like to try new things and learn new things.  i'm signed up to a whole bunch of classes here on Skillshare and am slowly going through my roster.  Next year i'm hoping to be able to go back to school in graphic design so a lot of these classes are giving me a little look at things i'll learn.

i haven't decided yet what my project will be.  i have a few ideas but not sure which one i should start with.  (farmers market, trip in Maui, places we've visited, this year's summer vacation trip

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

  2. Why am I the expert to create this map?  cause it will be based on my personal experience

  3. Who is my target audience? myself, friends & family

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

  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).  i'd like it to be both. printed as wall art

  6. “Dear classmates, I need your help/expertise/
    guidance on how to.....”   not sure yet, i'm sure i'll find something as i work through my project
