Being the ancient cradle of the Greek civilization, Siracusa has always lived in an extraordinary fusion between myth and reality. Since the publication of “Antiche Siracuse” by Vincenzo Mirabella, the now Italian town, and particularly the Ortigia island, has become the ideal subject for an imaginative and creative representation which melt together reality and imagination. Visionary illustrated maps show an idealized city in which ruins of ancient monuments and medieval architectures are assimilated into each other with imaginary reconstructions of routes, districts and famous buildings. A real tribute which increased the city mythic imaginary and represented a huge attraction for European grand tourists of the eighteenth century. Designed by studio formagramma

Limited editions are always fun because most of the time it means that the design agency who got commissioned to the the job can create something unique. Singapore design agency Innovation Kitchen together with illustrator Michael Ng. had the honours to create the Johnnie Walker Blue Lable ‘ Cityscape series’.
The design is aimed at the travelling whisky collector. Each of the gold-etched cityscape illustrations of New York, San Francisco, Los Angels, Mumbai, Singapore, and Hong Kong were featured on a limited number of bottles.
“The level of craft that goes into the illustrations was key in reflecting the premium quality, spirit and exclusivity of Blue Label. Part of the challenge was working with fine details on a limited label space; we extracted only the most iconic elements of each city to be arranged in a way that captured the true essence of each city. The result is a range of delightful keepsakes which serve as a beautiful reminder of your travels.” Innovation Kitchen Design Director Lewis Owen

I love these city illustrations they reveal some of the cities most unique features, from it’s architecture, local food and drinks to history and culture. Airbnb created these illustrations to feature Europe’s 10 most hospitable cities. The move makes the site more than just a marketplace that connects travellers with people who want quality accommodation but also a site that acts like an agent who needs to inspire people to discover new and exciting destinations.
It is funny that I just recently found these illustrations seeing that I just signed up to Airbnb myself. Hoping to have my personal Oslo, Norway site up and running soon.
