The Atlas of Design is dedicated to showing off some of the world’s most beautiful and intriguing cartographic design. Every two years, we publish a new volume of full-color maps, selected from worldwide competition and judged by an expert panel.

Submissions for the 2016 edition of the Atlas of Design are closed! We had more than 250 submissions this year. We are currently reviewing the maps.

The Atlas aims to inspire readers both within the field of cartography and without toward new understandings of design, and of the power that a well-crafted map can have. Take a look at Volume I and Volume II.
