Typographic design for a book compiled by Australian business author Bernadette Jiwa, connecting aspiring entrepreneurs with words of wisdom from 13 international creative business leaders.
Each contributor is represented by a crosshair in a circle, locating their place within the book’s ‘map’. These marks become a navigational device that extends to the accompanying website. They also act as a playful graphical element throughout, dictating and changing the pace of the book. You Are The Map Maker has received several international typographic awards, and has subsequently developed into a series of posters available to buy online.
