All over the Map

Typographic maps

Hello! My name is Louise Jessup, and am the owner of All Over the Map Studios. I am a one-woman show, in charge of research, design, marketing, branding, and distribution!

My colourful typographic maps add a touch of whimsy and an “I love my neighbourhood” to any space. Born and raised in Kitchener, many of my maps are of Ontario communities.

For my city maps, I research the unique layout of each city – both its boundary & neighbourhoods – using city planning maps, real estate boundaries and tourism offices. I then set to work on my Mac to accurately plot the map and create visual interest through font orientation and sizing.

Once designed, I use a high-quality, local printing company to produce each print.
