Who we are.

We are women, artists, writers, illustrators, explorers and day-dreamers.
These are the people bringing Really Good Maps to life.

Really Good Maps was born of the idea that the next generation deserve opportunities to explore unbridled possibility for understanding and designing the world around them.

We hire and collaborate with young illustrators and designers because they too are the future. The goal of our work together is to provide an opportunity to showcase their skills while gaining professional experience and guidance. We look forward to building greater support and community for this next generation of those designing the world around us.
