Stamen Design’s Watercolour Map
Stamen Design are a bespoke design and technology company based in San Francisco. They have a reputation for creating wonderful looking maps, often with OpenStreetMap data, and their latest map is quite stunning – the Watercolour Map. The textures applied to the map give it a lovely, hand-drawn look, although of course it’s actually some very clever programming that is allowing the imagery to be produced automatically – for the entire world.
