WHAT ARE MAPOLOGY GUIDES?
"We’ve been fans of Mapology Guides since the very beginning; they’ve got *just* the right balance between helping us to learn, challenging thoughts, empowering actions and affirming who we are." Nick
Mapology Guides are illustrated self-help maps for life’s ever-evolving journey. Colourful, playful, empowering and thought-provoking, their main purpose is to help you build an emotional toolkit as you navigate your way through life.
With themes like 'how to deal with overthinking', 'how to befriend uncertainty' and 'how to say NO" - you'll gain a new perspective and cultivate greater inner awareness. They are designed to inspire, educate and transform.
Why maps? Maps present information about the world in a simple, visual way. They lend order to complex environments and are beautiful.
Humans are complex beings, but despite different backgrounds, cultures and beliefs we all really share the same feelings, emotions and worries.
Our colourful fold-out maps will help lend order to your internal world. You will gain self-knowledge and travel from a dilemma, question or something that's niggling you, to a helpful resolution. Oh, and did we mention they are beautiful too?
We were truly humbled that Mapology Guides was nominated in the PRODUCTS OF 2020 category of The Independent Awards 2020 - created by Holly & Co. and spearheaded by Holly Tucker, founder of Not On The High Street.
The awards were established to showcase and recognise the very best creative small businesses across the UK. 50,000 nominations whittled down to 118 across six categories and WE WERE ONE OF THEM! #proudmoment
WHO ARE MAPOLOGY GUIDES FOR?
Our vibrant fold-out maps are for people interested in creativity, personal development, mental health and well-being. They can be used on one's own, with a friend(s), partner, work colleague or family member. Numerous coaches and therapists use them as a tool with their clients. They also make for a great gift and we know that many frame them as posters.
Every map features a writer and illustrator. We use metaphors - utilising language and imagery - to make the complex subjects engaging.
