Jennifer Hill

Map Designer

I founded the “Places I Have Never Been” drawing series. I was driving on a dark night listening to Modest Mouse. They have a line saying “we named our children after towns, that we’ve never been to.” I started dreaming about places I had never been to and started to see patterns. At home I started to sketch and put the drawings together as a desk calendar gift for my design clients. People really enjoyed the calendar and it organically morphed into a print series of “modern travel posters.”
