The Portsmouth Vernacular Map

14 Oct

Biased I may be, but this map of my hometown – Portsmouth – is an artistic gem.

Titled: The Portsmouth Vernacular Map, local artist and recent design graduate – Jodie Silsby – has captured both the aesthetic and cultural feel of the coastal city in this fantastic project. She’s taken the island’s form and transformed it by using local slang and colloquialisms – whilst staying true to the shape of the land.

Watch out London, you’re next.
