Design is the bridge that connects a brand's vision with its audience, creating a cohesive and immersive experience.

What Pinterest tells us about this image

Map drawn as a cover for a ring binder I gave my mother’s for her 50st birthday. I made the map entirely by hand and with a brand pan – normal pencils won’t stick on the plastic of the ring binder. However, the varnish reacted somehow with the ink, so down under is blurred a bit (and a bit too much). Moreover, the ring binder isn’t exactly water proof anymore, so the varnish actually counteracts the purpose of itself. 2011. – This was originally posted on Pinterest. See the original
