Mapbox, Cartography
2015

During the summer of 2015, inspired by some blueprint schematics of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D I got for my birthday, I designed the Blueprint map. Eager to test the latest version of Mapbox Studio, I decided to redesign the style taking full advantage of Mapbox GL rendering awesomeness. 

I worked with a limited color palette of three blues and a single typeface, FF Kievit, in order to capture the bold yet sophisticated graphic quality of architectural blueprints.
