I wanted to look at how graphic artists have displayed the UK map using vector style graphics.
I found this on behance:
This was an advert for British gas in The Guardians Weekend Magazine. It was created to show different locations of the UK and homes using energy in different ways.
You can see the difference in the counties carbon emissions by looking at the landmarks, the landmarks in the midlands and north are of factories and power stations whilst Devon and Cornwall is just country side and the Eden project.
These are the small landmarks which are used in the article, they are very simplistic but elegantly designed.
The little touchs of the whale, birds and waves below the ship and oil rig adds character and depth.
