Venezia, probably the most famous little city in the world. How did people engineer this place? Seriously, how has it not been destroyed by a flood? Archie worked with world-traveller David Hennessy on this one, slicing the tiny islands into the floating maze that attracts millions of tourists every year.


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.
