Here’s a little about how I made it:
Last week I was looking for something to make for my husband for Valentine’s Day, and stumbled across this on Pinterest. Its a tutorial from the blog mimimoz on how to create a “Love Map”. I enjoy cutting, gluing and sanding picture frames as much as the next graphic designer, but I wanted to put a modern twist on this idea.
I call mine the “Graphic Designers Version” of the shabby-chic tutorial (which can be seen above).
I chose to use the place we met, got engaged, and got married. I wanted to give the design an elegant, modern feel, so I simplified it until it reflected those qualities. After illustrating the heart shape, I took screen shots of our important places from Google Maps to put inside. I added some type below the hearts (the lovely Lavanderia, available free from Lost Type Co-Op), and printed my creation on my highest quality photo paper.
This design can easily be customized for any size or style. If you’d like one of your own, let me know! It makes a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day!
