Client:   City of Aspen, Colorado

Aspen is a famous Colorado resort town nestled in a valley surrounded by incredible mountains. It has a large and actively used summer and winter trail system, but needed a good print map to help visitors and locals alike make good use of these resources. GreenInfo, as part of a related web project, was asked to create a new approach to their old trails map.

The City of Aspen is just under 10,000 residents, but it has world-class recreation around it.   An older trail brochure was due for updating and at the same time, Pitkin County (within which Aspen is located) had commissioned GreenInfo to develop a web-based trail finder and mobile application (learn more about this project).  The final map was refined using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and prepared as a publication-ready file.

The City of Aspen developed the flip side of the map and printed 40,000 copies to be distributed to city visitors.
