Illustrated Maps of Londons Waterways
Client: Canal and River Trust London
To design a set of 3 illustrated inset maps & 1 network map showing the canals & waterways of the London Area. These maps were produced for the Canal & River Trust to be used in the new version of their folding maplet and show walking and cycle routes around 2 key areas of the London network as well as transport networks and local attractions. Since the completetion of this project I have been re-commissioned by the Canal and River Trust to produce maps for their other 10 regions.
"Working with Bek has been a real pleasure. Canals and rivers aren’t like other forms of transport - they’re part route, part museum, part park and with over 100 miles in London alone they connect to almost everywhere! That’s why Bek’s maps are so special. With her patience, eye for detail and unique style she’s managed to distil the a huge amount of vital information into a beautiful but easy to read and use map that makes anyone viewing it immediately want to jump on a train and take a walk down a towpath. We’re now looking forward to working with Bek on some other waterways and we can’t recommend her skills highly enough."
