Barcelona has a very clever octagonal block structure, so it was decided to use that shape as the composition of the Barcelona map. Archie had long drawn-out consultations with native Catalonians to make sure this map captures the essence of his favourite city to visit. This is a collaboration with Ryan Wilson.

ABOUT THE IDEA

Information is more fun to read when it's beautiful. Archie designed these charts and maps with hours of research, reassembling data into a brain-friendly aesthetic. The information is edited significantly, avoiding the "dazzle" effect which occurs when our eyes are battered with too much information. Letterpress makes it even more gorgeous.

ABOUT LETTERPRESS PRINTING

Letterpress is a very complicated and expensive printing method. All letterpress prints are slammed with 600 pounds of pressure, creating a deep, tactile texture. The ink gets embedded into the thick soft paper so it won't fade within your lifetime.
