The Atlas of Design is a publication of the North American Cartographic Information Society, an organization of mapping professionals in academia, government, and the private sector. The Atlas of Design project is headed up by two NACIS members, Tim Wallace and Daniel Huffman.

Tim Wallace is a Graphics Editor at The New York Times and a Ph.D. candidate at The University of Wisconsin-Madison. He’s interested in cartographic design and interaction in news media. He is also a gummi bear enthusiast. You can find him at, or on Twitter at @wallacetim. He also serves as one of the two principles of the popular Bostonography, along with Andy Woodruff and is a co-organizer for Practical Cartography Day at NACIS 2012 in Portland (yes, he hopes to see you there!).

Daniel Huffman is a freelance cartographic designer and the proud owner of the imaginatively-named domain You can find him on Twitter at @pinakographos, or read one of his two blogs. He hopes to someday invent the profession “map critic.”
