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.

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.
