The Green Map project is a global initiative to create maps that don’t rely heavily on the ‘native’ language of the area and promotes a universal language through iconography to be used across the globe. The premise being to encourage people to investigate their local surrounding for eco-friendly alternatives and green spaces to enjoy.

I created a custom printed map on eco-friendly paper to be distributed to 3000+ residents of an area of central Cardiff (Adamsdown). Alongside this was an interactive website and a 3 meter wide permanent, anti-graffiti sign of the map mounted in one of the green spaces in the area.

I then went on to work with Green Map HQ in New York to develop some new icons for their suite that conveyed some complex environmental terms. These icons are now used around the globe by those involved with the green map project.

I went on to create further Green Maps with organisations such as Groundwork and BTCV in the areas around South Wales.
