Brief

Create a large wall map showing
the local area, incorporating the
Humberts brand guidelines

Humberts brand was expanding into the Lake District as a new northern territory, after many successful offices based in the south of the UK. Humberts specialises in providing residential, rural and commercial property advice. They help thousands of clients buy, sell and manage their homes, farms, land and investments. Our brief was to create a new cartographic design for the new Humberts Windermere branch, based on a single, quirky sketch provided in the Humberts brand identity style guide.

Clear Mapping Co based the client’s map on a couple searching for their perfect country retreat in the Lake District. We highlighted the main towns and villages as well as the best places to enjoy living in a National Park. The perspective drawing gives the illusion of the couple looking over the wall of their newly purchased country property and viewing the locality, with a Humberts wrought iron gate. The Herdwick sheep are a key feature in the landscape and give the artwork a strong sense of place. The client is really pleased with the wall map and has plans to further raise their brand locally with a delicious Foodie Map, based on the feature wall map.

Caroline went to a lot of trouble to ensure our information panel was in line with our expectations for this very site specific commission. We are very pleased with the result and would happily recommend the Clear Mapping Company to other prospective customers.
