if youve landed here

___________________________

…or, what we’ve been working on over the past 12 months.

 

January

Croatia

In January we produced maps for a new client, Dalmation Destinations, a tour operator based in London who specialise in chartered boats trips in Croatia and Montenegro.

February

Basic CMYK

February saw more maps for a regular client, the Assura Group. This particular map was for a walk route around Blyth.

March

ATG 09 design template

More maps, 17 in total this time, for another regular client, Audley Travel, all based around south east Asia.

April

EUROPE_JIGSAW

In April a new client from Ireland asked us to create an A2 size map of Europe to be used for a jigsaw.

May

Trouville_Sandown

Much closer to home in May when we produced this map of Sandown for the Trouville Hotel.

June

IHM NEWPORT 2012 final KP

Another regular client, Island Holiday Media, came back to us in June for maps covering Cowes and the River Medina.

July

Print

We produced this map of Liverpool Walks for the History Press in July.

August

DSCN2731

In August we once again visited sunny Spain – well, Menorca to be more precise. Seamus and Sean take a dip in the hotel pool.

September

Priory_Hospitals

This was one of two maps supplied to Priory Healthcare showing their locations around the UK.

October

helpful holidays

October, and another client who we’ve worked with over a number of years, Helpful Holidays. These were maps for their 2015 holiday brochure.

November

Capable_Travel

A new client, Capable Travel, wanted a 7 foot tall map of the UK for projection at a presentation they were doing.

December

CPM2 Region Template.ai

Another new client, this time On Foot Holidays, requested an initial 10 maps for their website followed by a further 14.

 

Loads more, literally hundreds, of samples of maps we’ve produced for clients can be found on our Pinterest boards

Have a good 2015!

A steamy concoction of passion, jealousy, greed and naivety from the writer of Bare Bones, also available on Amazon.

“…at less than £1.25 for the Kindle version, well worth a read.”

“…this one stands out from the crowd. Try not to miss it.”

The PCGraphics ‘Who’s Who’ of Tourism Companies

if youve landed here

___________________________

We mentioned (ok, boasted) recently in a blog post about the number of Tour Operator and Tourism companies we’ve worked with over the years. Well…we decided to see just how many we could find in a quick search through our records. Ok, so we were bored and had a few minutes to spare in the office!

It reads a bit like a Who’s Who of tourism. There’s some big names in there, plus some smaller outfits too.

Have a quick look and see if we’ve drawn maps for your holiday company.

For some of these clients we’ve already been busy creating new mapping and revising existing maps for their 2015 holiday destinations – and it’s only the end of October 2014 as I write this. We actually started the first of the maps for 2015 back in July!

So…and here comes the sales part (look away now if you’re of a nervous disposition)…if you work in the tourism industry and would like to talk to us about some new maps for your website or brochures, then don’t hesitate. We can handle last minute requests but it makes it easier all round, for us and for you, if we get a bit more time to produce exactly what you want.

For enquiries, either skip over to the contact page on our website, or email us. It’s dead easy really. And we’re very friendly too.

Oh, and enjoy next year’s holiday too, wherever you happen to be going and whoever’s map you are using.

A retrospective view of 2013

if youve landed here

 

Here’s a quick look back at some of the highlights of what we did in 2013. In Facebook terms you might call this the PCGraphics Timeline for 2013.

 

January 2013

WALES

Maps of Torquay, Brixham and Paignton in Devon, UK, produced for a marketing company. Created from scratch and based on Ordnance Survey data.

London

Wasted our time producing this A4 map of London for another marketing company (serving the luxury hotel industry) who requested this map then changed their minds after we’d produced it. Which is why we now nearly always ask for money upfront with new clients – saves dealing with time wasters.

February

henley

A simple but nice little map of Henley on Thames produced for a publisher of historical books – one of many maps we’ve produced over the years for this client. Again, based on Ordnance Survey material.

March

Template

In March we produced a series of 7 maps showing the location of artistic venues for Isle of Wight Arts.

April

Print

A map of Cowes and East Cowes created for the ferry company Red Funnel and displayed at the ferry terminal.

May

POW

Perhaps not the most visually exciting map that we’ve produced but then, considering the subject, maybe it’s right not to be. This map plots the route taken by 1500 Prisoners of War in 1945 from Poland to Berlin, with approximately half the journey made on foot. The book is called The Long Road, by Oliver Clutton-Brock.

June

ATG 09 design template

One of probably hundreds of maps produced over the years for one of our most valued clients for use in their travel brochures and website. This particular example being an overview map of China.

July

seamus

Seamus takes a leap into the pool during a well earned holiday in the sun in Menorca.

August

helpful

We update around 17 maps for Helpful Holidays on an annual basis around August time.

September

Basic CMYK

In September we started a series of walk maps which are produced at A1 size, encapsulated in clear acrylic sheets and wall mounted at Health Centres around the UK. We have been busy creating these from September through till December.

October

CPM2 Template landscape.ai

Map of Rhodes produced for another long term client. We’re fortunate to have worked with a number of clients over a long period of time. We still have clients today who we first worked with soon after we started PCGraphics back in 1998.

November

A4 Assura Template

Still working on the series of walk maps for UK Heath Centres.

December

montage

Work starts on a new title for Ocean Explorer Maps – another valued client we’ve worked with for many years. Work in progress at the moment, more details to come soon.

And that, folks, was 2013. Let’s all hope that 2014 is equally as good.
