Case Study: Best Western® Hotels & Resorts
Merritt Cartographic has produced two maps for Best Western® Hotels & Resorts - Great Britain for use in a recent promotional brochure. These maps highlight the locations of all the Best Western® hotels in Great Britain.
Best Western® had been using previous versions of these maps (produced by a different supplier) in their brochures for several years. However, as their brand guidelines had changed over time and their roster of hotels had grown since the earlier maps were created, they needed a series of updated maps for use in their latest brochure. Merritt Cartographic was asked to create a new, visually appealing, design for these maps, which maintained this company's corporate identity.

Case Study: National Museum of African American History & Culture floor plans
Merritt Cartographic has recently produced a series of graphics for the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture. This is a new museum, opened in 2016, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.. These plans were produced for a guidebook of the museum and help readers to navigate across eight floors of public galleries.
These graphics have been created with reference to accurate architectural plans and are drawn to scale. It was decided that a few key 'landmark' objects and displays should be visualised with small yet detailed illustrations. This provides guidebook readers and visitors to the museum with reference points as they travel around the building. Pictorial icons have also been included to identify public facilities and access points.
Merritt Cartographic produces detailed graphics and illustrations for a full range of applications and purposes.

NACIS Atlas of Design
Ancient Egypt - Sites and Settlements of the Dynastic Period, is included in the 2nd edition of the North American Cartographic Information Society's (NACIS) Atlas of Design. This edition is, according to the publisher, "dedicated to showing off some of the world's most beautiful and intriguing cartographic design."
I was delighted, therefore, that this map, along with a short commentary describing the design process, was considered worthy of inclusion amongst a collection of 32 maps from contributors located around the world. Many of these maps have been produced by cartographers whose previous work and knowledge has provided me with a great deal of inspiration to further develop my own abilities.
This map details the key settlements of the Ancient Egyptian civilisation. Also shown are many of the important Ancient Egyptian sites and temples that remain today. The various capitals are highlighted on the map in addition to the locations of the natural resources and minerals exploited by the Ancient Egyptians.
