VanDam's award-winning Long Island StreetSmart maps all top attractions including beaches, birding, golf, the Hamptons, vineyards, and state parks - all at an immensely legible super-scale of 1:150,000. Clear information design allows users to read the map from three feet away and has earned VanDam maps a place in the MoMA Collection.
The Long Island StreetSmart includes details of the Hamptons, North Fork, Montauk, and the rest of Suffolk and Nassau Counties, as well as the 5 Boros of The City of New York. Edition includes LIRR transit lines and Hampton shortcuts.
Simplicity reigns supreme in information design to make complex cities clear and understandable. Our typography creates character and reveals the true bones of the city. VanDam uses a letter grid to identify locations on maps - no confusing and cluttering K-28 or V-34s - its just the city from A-Z. Our covers map the icons of each city and turn them into collectible graphic art. Each sleek and laminated city map package opens to 24" x 9" and then easily folds down to 4" x 9" to snuggly fit into a shirt pocket or purse. Gain instant Longuyland StreetSmarts and a sexy souvenir to boot!
