My Local Notebooks project is an intersection of the city, maps, alternative forms of transportation, design, and playing with data.
Using open data and open source tools, along with a unique production process – laser etching – I created a series of beautiful and intriguing notebooks. Although my city (Orlando) is very spread out and car-dependent, my maps envision it differently. SunRail (our new commuter rail) runs north-south; thick lines show the proposed city-wide trail plan (longer-distance bicycle routes), and the thin lines are all the places you can go on a LYNX bus. The many lakes and parks of Central Florida provide the backdrop. I’ve continued these themes throughout the other cities I have designed maps for.
