Full Version: Seattle Poster Project
Dumpshock Forums > Discussion > Shadowrun
Currently I'm working on a historical map of Seattle. I've already completed a detailed map of Downtown Seattle. I hope to finish the district map and an overview of the Pacific Northwest this week. As a basis for the maps I've used today's maps of OpenStreetmap. I used the Seattle Sourcebook to insert the locations and to compare the roads today with those 2050. The final poster should be in the format DIN A1 (841 x 594 mm / 23.39 x 33.11 inch). Here you can take a look at the production steps:

Early poster layout. In the top left corner is the placeholder for the Downtown road map and the Pacific Northwest overview.

If you want to take a closer look to Downtown Seattle map you can download the slimmed PDF.
This looks really useful, can't wait to see the finished product.

Just awesome mate!
As a graphic designer and Seattle resident IRL, I salute the hell out of this. This is *awesome*.

Almost finished Pacific Northwest. I have to proof it and maybe have to do some minor changes. ... 12 hours later - time to sleep.
Second, corrected Version of Downtown Seattle (PDF).
Fantastic work smile.gif Kudos!
Almost done: Seattle Districts Poster
That's gangster dawg.
Today I finished the district map. I hope I did not miss any errors. Here the final PDF:

Pacific Northwest (Format: DIN A3, ca. 6 MB)
Seattle Districts (Format: DIN A1, ca. 19 MB)
Seattle Downtown (Format: DIN A3, ca. 1 MB)
Thanks! These are great work!
All three are amazing looking. I love the retro design, and poster size.

One small suggestion: On the Pacific Northwest Map, the tribal names are the same font-size as city names. As region names, they should be larger than city names (while still smaller than "Salish-Shidhi Council").
I've printed the posters now:

all three posters together
