Curious Christmas map for Time Out London
Client: Time Out London magazine | December 2016 | Digital rendering
I produced this map of London for a feature about unusual Christmas themed activities and traditions in London written by Henry Eliot and Matt-Lloyd Rose, the authors of Curiocity: In Pursuit of London (whom I collaborated with on a previous project here) and published in the December 2016 issue of Time Out London magazine. It incorporates sketched illustrations of the various activities mentioned in the piece with a period style map of the city.
The whole double page spread in the magazine's 'Things To Do' section, a combination of background map, floating illustrations and text boxes.
Illustrations of scenes that are mentioned in the text (clockwise from top left): Christmas Day swimmers at the Serpentine lake, Hyde Park; a couple kissing under mistletoe at the Geffrye Museum; Santa Claus in his grotto at Sutton House, Hackney; the equestrian statue of Prince George, Duke of Cambridge, with a nosebag.
Illustrations of scenes that are mentioned in the text (clockwise from top left): a Christmas wreath sold at Columbia Market; a Christmas dinner served at the Crisis homeless shelter in Commercial Street; a jerk barbecue at the Christmas Carnival in Brixton; pulling Christmas crackers made at the Homemade London workshop.
