Upside Down Maps
This is a set of maps of the UK by John Sims. The country is divided in smaller sections, which are color-coded addressing the direction of travel. The typography in these maps is consistent with the navigation. In contrast to the previous example, the designer had the user in mind and the task performed. By eliminating the need to turn the map around, the information is uncluttered and relevant to the task.
