Planet London Poster
London Design Festival 2015

As part of London Design Festival, DN&Co put together Co-ordinates, an exhibition of 2 colour screen prints on the theme of ‘mapping London’. POKE and 24 other London design studios and artists produced designs to be sold as limited edition screen prints raising money for homeless charity Streets of London.

Role: Design  /  Designed at POKE.

Planet London is generated from an open dataset of building outlines published by Ordinance Survey. We took the traditionally flat map projection in which London is usually experienced, and distorted it onto a spherical projection. This is the reverse of the transformation that normally happens to a world map.

  • Help from Laura Hobson
  • Gif and Mercatur projection by Eric George.
