Typographic Cartography: Information design at its best

Typographic Maps

I love these maps. Brilliant concept, beautifully executed. Fun yet functional. The very definition of information design. The approach is very basic: The bigger the street or geographic feature, the bigger the type.

It works for me.

Axis Maps has covered Boston and Chicago so far; maps of San Francisco, New York City and Washington D.C. are in the works. I stumbled upon these via Fast Company Design on Twitter.
