Barcelona Letterpress Print
Says Archie: Barcelona has a very clever octagonal block structure, so we decided to use that shape as the composition of the Barcelona map. We had long drawn-out consultations with native Catalonians to make sure this map captures the essence of my favorite city to visit.

So Why All The Circles?
New research indicates that GPS's are hindering our ability to create mental maps of our surroundings. Archie's Press maps aim to install a "Map from the Mind", simplifying structures and neighborhoods in the most efficient and beautiful way. The circle, our Universe's softest shape, is the clearest graphic to convey size and connection.
Get to Know the Maker: Archie Archambault
Archie Archambault is a designer and inventor living between Portland, Oregon and Brooklyn, New York. He started making maps several years ago because nobody else was explaining cities simply and clearly.
He studied Art and Philosophy at Colorado College, Urban Design at Harvard and Advertising at Wieden+Kennedy. We think he's the coolest.
