University of Oxford
Colleges & Collections Map
Easily one of my favourite commissions, this little map for the University of Oxford
has just been published and made available in the University’s own online and
high street shop.
Back in August, Oxford Limited had commissioned me to design & illustrate an A3 souvenir map that should feature all of the University’s colleges and collections,
plus a few of the well known Oxford sights.
The map includes short, very entertaining descriptions, written by Natasha Podro,
that offer some general information about each place listed.
In the course of the project, I produced outline drawings of all of the 44 colleges and halls, as well as of the 9 University collections, before creating the city’s street map. Following that, I did the layout of the text and the design of the map’s front & back cover, using the University’s logos and colour scheme.
So, if you’re planning a trip to beautiful Oxford, and happen to be interested in the city’s (education) history, you can order the handy map at the University of Oxford Online Shop, the University of Oxford Shop on 106 High Street, Oxford or the Bodleian Library Shop.
Oxford Limited is the retail and brand licensing branch of the University of Oxford.
