BOAT International – Florida illustrated map
Posted 1 year ago and submitted by Marcus Marritt | Share link:


I was commissioned by BOAT International magazine to produce an illustrated Florida map to feature in their UK December issue. The full page illustration runs alongside an editorial covering the best spots to visit in Florida. The brief highlighted the need to have individual location illustrations that could be pulled out and used as spots within the text. The client was very trusting with the art direction, highlighting examples of my personal work as the style most wanted. I used a tight colour palette, with an overall pastel tone and playing on the classic Florida / Miami summer time theme.

‘Marcus has been an absolute delight to work with. Nothing is ever too much bother and I have been blown away by how incredibly talented he is. Always takes the time to explain his reasoning for certain aspects of his design and has been very adaptable to a number of different briefs. He is our go to guy for all our design needs. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough.'
