Map design is not cartography! Cartographers create maps from data points while map designers work with a variety of source material that already exists, to create custom maps that show the information you want to highlight clearly and attractively.

Deborah Reade design has more than 30 years experience in map design and illustration and we are equally comfortable designing for print, exhibitions or the web.  Because of this, you can be assured that not only will your map look beautiful, but it will also meet whatever technical specifications are required. Requirements for a map to be viewed online, for instance, are completely different from those for a map that will be silkscreened onto a gallery wall. Having a designer who understands the differences will help you avoid problems and delays.

We have an extensive map library that includes more than 1200 maps and related reference materials. To create your map, we can work with reference you provide or research your job for you.
