Learn Map Design In Online Class
Paris-based blogger and designer Anne Ditmeyer is teaching a virtual class beginning this month on map design on Skillshare. The three-week course will cover both hand-drawn maps and mapmaking in the digital age, culminating in some live "office hours" where you can bounce ideas off each other and present final projects. There are no grades, but she'll feature her top ten favorites on her blog, so you might get some good exposure if you are creative in your map project. You don't need any fancy computer or design skills, and it's a bargain at $20 (about the cost of a guidebook these days), so what are you waiting for?! The class already has students in over a dozen countries around the world; check out a map of them (I'm on there for Istanbul) here.
Sign up for the class here. It runs February 18 - March 11, but you can access the lectures and content at any time after they are posted and learn at your own pace. Read more about what you can expect from the course and Anne here.
