Las Vegas Letterpress Print by Archie's Press

Says Archie: Las Vegas didn't really develop in the same way as most American cities. It has a very high turnover rate of residents and is almost entirely dominated by the tourism industry. Therefore, nobody really bothered to name many of the neighborhoods. I guess that made my job easier, but can’t be good for the civic identity of the city.

  • Letterpress printed
  • 100% cotton Crane's Lettra® paper - it's the (really) good stuff
  • Size: 8" x 8"

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.
