Aymie Spitzer and her beautiful wooden maps

Aymie Spitzer is a graphic designer living in Brooklyn, New York. Neighborwoods is a personal project she has created through working at Hyperakt, an independent design studio from NYC. The response has been so positive that Neighborwoods is now her full time venture with 22 maps, other products such as coasters, skate desks or key chains (view them all here) a custom handwritten font and packaging. It is very interesting to see where she draws her inspiration from showing in the video old lettering books from the early 1900s and antique maps. It’s such a different and fresh air project.



La diseñadora gráfica Aymie Spitzer vive en Brooklyn, New York. Neighborwoods es su proyecto personal dentro de la comunidad de Hyperakt, un estudio de diseño independiente en Nueva York con el que colabora. La respuesta a este concepto de mapas de madera ha sido tan positivo que se ha convertido en una ocupación full time y ya cuenta con 22 mapas de diferentes vecindarios, otros productos como portavasos, planchas de patín, llaveros (toda la colección esta aquí), incluso una fuente tipográfica diseñada por ella y el packaging. Me ha gustado mucho ver de donde viene su inspiración para este proyecto, ella enseña en el video libros antiguos de tipografía de principios del s. XIX y mapas antiguos. ¡Me encanta, el proyecto es tan diferente y curioso a la vez!

How about some extra inspiration?

  2. I watched her video yesterday and loved that the agency where she works completely supports her creative endeavor! So inspiring and a wonderful example!

    1. You are so ahead, Judit :-) Have you seen the ‘Not normal american road maps’ with Hyperakt? Amazing graphic design!
