If you’ve ever looked at a traditional city map and lamented its unimaginative format, U.K. designer James Skevington has created the concept series ‘Frequent Flyer,’ rendering notable cities around the world as whimsical illustrations. The ‘maps,’ although not necessarily accurate for travel, work to provide the viewer with a sense of the cultural currency and content of a place, demonstrating its unique character through whimsical, colorful, and creative imagery. Although its not recommended you discard your GPS just yet, Skevington’s ‘Frequent Flyer’ remains an interest and innovative way to think about a city.
