Detroit Letterpress Print by Archie's Press


Says Archie: Detroit was the chicest, most influential city in the world during the 50's. Now, decades later, we see a city totally transformed. Driving around the streets, the state of affairs is testament to the American experiment, in all its massive scalability and fallibility. I love this city, home to so much of the world's best music, modern transportation, and good old engine grease.

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.
