Alameda County map lettering

Cities and landmarks needed a hand-lettered look for a map of this large East Bay county. The client is the Center for Healthy Schools and Communities, an agency in Alameda County. They needed lettering that was friendly, positive, unique, and legible at smaller sizes. These names were first brush lettered with ink on paper, and then digitized and edited. A very fun project for an excellent client! Art direction and map design by Gestalt Graphics.
