Simple Maps for Foundation Web Site

Map Illustration of Grantmaking Area
This illustration for a foundation website shows a generalized grant making area.
Client:   Christensen Fund

We helped the Christensen Fund prepare a series of static maps to highlight their program areas around the world.

Using Esri's ArcGIS software, we used an aerial imagery background, overlayed with a fuzzy boundary mask and reference labels.  An inset globe with shading to suggest a 3D view was added with a bit of work in Photoshop.  The resulting images give the viewer a sense of general project geography, suggesting that the fuzzy boundaries are not strict political delineations.
