There are few tasks that raise the anxiety levels in a designer like having to create a map. Clients ask for them like there’s a button on the computer that automatically generates beautiful accurate maps. In reality, their creation is a tedious task.
A tutorial from SpoonGraphics actually has me looking forward to my next map–I’m excited to try the techniques.
I found the tutorial thanks to this article that lists five different tutorials from five different sites. In addition to this map tutorial, there is also one that teaches how to create complex circular designs, another that adds a grunge effect to text, one more that shows how to make imaginative 3D pie charts and finally one from my buddy Von.
