(re-posting: fixed a typo on the map!)
I stumbled upon this kind of map in souvenir shop in New Zealand. I immediately fell in love with this idea! Because I love maps; and I love when things suddenly go upside down; and I love when familiar things get unexpected look! This artwork is designed with large printing in mind - it will look perfect as large poster! On smaller screens, all details might look too little though. I hope you will enjoy it! As always, created in Photoshop, with Wacom. Work duration: 12 hours precisely (non-stop :-).
It was kind of hard to tell how this map looked like just judging from the picture on the site, but I ended up being dissapointed. The names are just in a too big font, with about a third of the countries in Europe having abbreviated names just due to the lack of space. The European part of the map in particular just looks messy, with almost no cities or anything. All in all, the design is not very professional, and I will look for a more proper map instead. Don't buy this expecting to get a quality map, it's obviously meant to be more just decorative, and IMHO it fails at that as well.
This product was exactly what I was looking for! I love the upside down map concept but hated how all of the other options had silly logos or borders that took away from the whole concept and just looked ridiculous.
