Thanks for taking the time to read our story! Modern Map Art was founded in 2016 after I returned from my honeymoon where I was lucky enough to travel all over the world. I returned with an appreciation for the different cities I was in (Seoul, Sydney, etc.) and I wanted to take what I had learned about the culture and colors and turn that into something special.
Since I was very young, I was passionate about maps -- atlases, vintage maps, street maps -- anything I could get my hands on. I loved seeing how the urban sprawl had developed over time, and how when you look from above the lines look like an organized chaos over the city which tells it's own story.
I started using city grids and imagery to put together with colors that represented that city to create posters and art that would look good in anyone's home or office. We started with cities we were familiar with here in the US and we're going to expand to cities all over the world. Our designs are elegant and modern, with a touch of nostalgia for anyone that has a connection to the city.
We hope that you'll love our designs, and if you don't, we're willing to work with you to help create something unique and memorable for you. I'd love to share my passion for travel and the world with you!
