Drawings Make Maps More Fun

The colorful and detailed maps released by graphic design studio KHUAN + KTRON almost look like game boards. Their vibrancy and pop culture blends with the studio’s usual eccentric style to give a little playfulness back to the sometimes-dull art of cartography. But like all good—and useful—maps, the really benefit of these drawings lies in the details. You’ll notice cultural icons and popular tourist hubs in maps of Australia, France and the UK.
