London is nearly as winding and confusing as Tokyo. In fact, it is the most difficult city on earth to get a taxi-driver license. They need to learn 25,000 streets and hundreds of routes, getting their passengers to their destination in the shortest and quickest way possible. This takes the average person 2-4 years. Archie worked with London-based cartographer Andy Bolton on this map, simplifying the city of millions to a few down lines and bubbles.


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.


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.
