Symetris Pilates


Just as was the case with Balanced Bodies, a map was needed to show people how to easily find the studio. These maps could then be used in flyers, backs of business cards, web site, etc.

The task was a little more difficult this time around because the key points that needed to be shown were spread out over a different area. This meant that simply scanning a map and then adjusting it to vector format would not be effective.

I sat down with a piece of paper and first drew a rough sketch, figuring out the most effective way to convey the information that was needed. After that I used a graphic tablet and traced the lines. Once I had a rough sketch I then started to smoothen the lines in Corel Draw, add the street names, etc. I was able to reuse some of the objects from the Balanced Bodies map such as the tram and the parking symbol, but I didn't have a bus. I used the same technique to make a bus as I did for the other objects - finding a bitmapped symbol, blowing it up, enhancing it and then tracing it. For more details on this process please see the Balanced Bodies map explanation.
