WHAT ARE MAPOLOGY GUIDES?
Mapology Guides are illustrated self-help maps for life’s journey. The vibrant fold out maps are playful and thought-provoking, with the main aim to help you build an emotional toolkit as you navigate your way through life.
We cover themes like gratitude, uncertainty and how to say NO - with the hope you will cultivate new ways of thinking, being and doing. They are designed to educate, entertain and transform.
We use mapping techniques (despite the non-geographic themes) to communicate our message and hope that you will be inspired to travel from a dilemma, question or something that's niggling you, to a helpful resolution.
WHO ARE MAPOLOGY GUIDES FOR?
Mapology Guides 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, utilising language and imagery to make the complex subjects engaging.
WHO IS BEHIND MAPOLOGY GUIDES?
Mapology Guides launched in 2015 and are curated, designed and published by Mapology Guides Limited, a venture co-founded by Tina Bernstein, designer and creative entrepreneur.
Tina has a BA Honours degree in Graphic Design from Central Saint Martins and in the past has worked as a designer and business consultant for the creative industries. With a strong background in psychology, Mapology Guides arose from her passion to find different ways to empower individuals to adopt their own approach to mindfulness, well-being and personal development.
Her love for printed maps and illustration gave her the idea for format and execution.
