Jose Miguel Cardoso Exhibits The Illustrated Map of Sao Joao Da Madeira City Map

Jose Miguel Cardoso, the lead designer of the awarded design Award Winning Illustrated Map of Sao Joao da Madeira City Map points out, This map shows a hybridism of observational drawing and cartographic code. It is inspired by the old Portulan charts, in which the rose of the winds marks the location of the navigator / observer towards the landscape. The observer in the center of the map is framed by a 360 degree panorama of the city landscape, offering a direct relationship between the map and the surrounding landscape, stimulating the sense of place. Reading upside down, breaking the convention of North in the top, allows to better know the world..
