From Sea to Sea

This typographic map of Canada outlines Canadian provinces and territories by filling their geographical land mass with a bilingual repetition (English – French) of the country’s name, with the (arbitrarily) prominent cities then set in bold type.

This typographic map is meant to be printed and framed in a living room, bedroom or office setting.

It is printed on a 100lb stock 24 inch by 36 inch poster. Original image is 11400px by 7800 px.

The map is set on a white background, and aims to keep a minimalistic design.

Futura is used throughout the map, Futura Medium being used for Province and Territory names and Futura Extra Bold for large cities or metropolitan areas.

Geographical accuracy was a secondary focus in this design. Due to the preference of having no hyphenation and maintaining the general outline of countries, some land areas appear slightly misrepresented. The position of cities is however, as accurate as possible.
