Knowledge Quarter Map

Simplified and stylised mapping developed for the Knowledge Quarter, London

Commissioned by brand design consultancy, Piers & Dominic, Yellowfields designed and produced a simplified map of the area covered by the Knowledge Quarter, London. The full extent of the area is shown in the image below.

The Knowledge Quarter is a consortium of partner organisations of many different kinds but with one thing in common—all actively engaged in advancing and disseminating knowledge. It is a gateway to knowledge of every kind, opening doors for visitors, students, researchers and people who live and work in this dynamic part of London.

The map, designed to align with the emerging brand, was used in the printed Annual Review. The reduced scale extract above shows a version locating the current 58 partner organisations, all within one mile of St Pancras International. An SVG version was created to be used on the website with a simple zoom and pan facility.
