Illustrated Visitor Map of Balmoral

Client: The Balmoral Estate

The Balmoral Estate commissioned me to design a new illustrated visitor map.  

The new Balmoral illustrated visitor map needed to be engaging to look at with a hand-drawn style as well as easy for people to use and navigate their way round the castle grounds. I undertook a site visit to Balmoral so I could get a feel for the grounds and take lots of photos. 

The finished map highlighted the key areas and buildings of the estate in an attractive and easy to understand way.  The map was used on both estate signage and on the visitor audio tour leaflets.  The audio tour version of the map was A3 in size and the larger, signage version was approximately 1 metre wide.

The client was very pleased with the final result.

For more information and a couple of photos of a very snowy Lochnagar see my Balmoral blog post.

To illustrate a map that is clear and easily understood is no simple task. Bek Cruddace not only managed that for Balmoral, but produced an attractive piece of artwork that will be the envy of our neighbouring visitor attractions. I would recommend Bek to anyone thinking of commissioning a similar task.
