I am told there are people who do not care for maps & I find it hard to believe

We Create Visual Story-Maps

We believe maps are more than just a tool to help us navigate - they’re also a powerful way of telling stories that capture our imagination.

Through our unique approach to mapmaking - we specialise in crafting beautiful animated visual story-maps for inspiring organisations & businesses.

Connecting with people & growing audiences.

Wild  Creative Minds

Our cosy eco-insulated studio is nestled in-between the expansive Cairngorm mountains & the golden beaches of the Moray Firth in the Highlands of Scotland - occasionally decamping to other locations for site-specific projects.

We care deeply about our natural environment.

Exploring it refreshes & feeds our creative souls.

Fight For Scotland’s Nature

Working with Scottish Environment LINK - we crafted 3 x short-form visual story-maps to support the inspiring campaign for a Scottish Environment Act.
Designed to be shared on social media - they were created using a combination of photography & hand-animated, chemical-free, non-toxic, natural dyes.
