Design:American Flags Map
Materials: Hand-printed silkscreen on paper, five colors with overprints
Designer: Jen Adrion + Omar Noory
"We're Jen and Omar, a design duo based in Columbus, Ohio. Through our studio, These Are Things, we create modern maps that celebrate the beauty of cartography and the adventurous spirit of travel."
"We designed our American Flags Map after admiring aerial landscapes during a cross-country flight. Delicately woven patterns define each state, while tiny flags conjure American summer staples: juicy citrus, fresh cut grass, and the clear June sky. Each piece is skillfully printed by hand, with fields of color layered to create new tones.
We are big believers in the transformative power of travel. We hope our work brings a sense of wanderlust and possibility into your home, whether you're a seasoned world traveler or just starting to dream about what's out there."
