Dedham Open Studios Map




I have been designing and altering this map for about 5 years. It is an interesting challenge ever year to get the map correct and have the businesses in the right spots.

I feel that drawing the map in illustrator is the way to go and put the text on top of it in Indesign. In Indesign I can move the name of the streets and art spots much easier.

This year I have added a new location in East Dedham. Little inserts can be a great but also you have to make them clear. The first year I drove the map to make sure it was accurate. Maps online are not always easy and can be wrong. I found that out but before the map was printed the first year, phew.

Stay tuned for the finished map
