To boldly go where no one has gone before.
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.
Swiss Ski Map Style
The world is divided into two categories: failures and unknowns.
Traditional ski maps feature steep slopes, ski routes, and snowboard routes over a contour heavy topographic base. The topography creates a detailed visualization of depth (or relief) of the cultural and natural features. Inspired by Swisstopo maps, this style highlights elevation contour lines along with specific ski features such as gondolas, chair lifts, and piste paths.

Vintage Map Style
We are not responsible for what we do; we are ignorant of our acts until we accomplish them.
Many classic maps contain detailed styling on the oceans and bodies of water surrounding the continents. This styling shows bathymetry, the measurement of the depth of water in oceans, seas, or lakes. The same way that topographic maps represent three-dimensional features (or relief) of overland terrain, bathymetric maps illustrate the land that lies underwater.
