For the past months i’ve been busy drawing hiking trails and paths as part of the project “Paths of Culture”, that Elliniki Etairia, Society for the Environment & Cultural Heritage is implementing together with various municipalities around Greece. The project aims to give new life to trails with natural beauty and historical importance, and promote hiking and eco-friendly tourism beyond the summer season, thus stimulating local economies.
So far i’ve sketched out and designed the signs for 2 trails, the Aporthianos path on the island of Patmos, and the Pine-Forest trail in Marathonas. The style is purposely childish and the angles and perspective are off. There’s even a smiling octapus in the sea, that i dont think is actually there, and nor does he smile. This is to make it more friendly and appealing, and less like an actual “to-scale”, serious map.
Its a super fun project and there’s more to come!
