make a map

Not like I haven't got enough to do already or anything, but I couldn't resist signing up for this course called Map Design: Learn to Communicate Places Beautifully from Anne Ditmeyer on Skillshare. Anne is a graphic designer, consultant, published writer and a longtime contributing editor for Design*Sponge. I've always loved maps; I remember the pleasure I used to take in colouring maps for geography class in school. Although I've made plenty of maps within the course of my design career I was attracted to the course for the challenge of creating a personal hand-drawn map (I don't do enough drawing) within a short space of time whilst at the same time making new contacts around the net. I believe there is always something to be gained from these quick, fun challenges, seasoned designer or not (especially if, like me, you work alone and need a bit of creative social interaction and feedback). There's still time to sign up before the course starts on Tuesday. It's very much aimed at busy people who want to work at their own pace and at just $20 you can't lose!
