Hi, I'm Mark Smith, founder and creator of Me On The Map. An adopted Londoner since the 90s, (having grown up in Dorset by the sea) I've been living in South East London ever since - and love the area. As a trained graphic designer and illustrator working for all sorts of global and UK organisations, I wanted to turn my hand to something literally closer to home.
My maps starts life being hand drawn - with pen and ipad. Every road and green space is carefully drawn and placed. From there it's crafted into a complete map.
Every map is printed to order. You can choose to personalise your map to show exactly where you live and show who lives there.
So you can say "That's me (or us!) on the map!"
This can be with a colour marker that points directly to your home, or by highlighting your road in a different colour.
Or you may prefer to have a map that simply shows your little bit of London. These you can personalise by colour.
All maps are printed to last a lifetime, on 300gsm archival paper using fade-proof inks. All prints are available framed if desired. They are all originally hand drawn by me in London, and produced in the UK.
I create different styles of London maps, all originally hand drawn by me...
