Ferment Magazine, Beer52




Award winning monthly magazine from Beer 52

I have worked on Ferment Magazine since 2018 and in that time produced over 30 maps.

Illustrating for Ferment Magazine involves creating a visually appealing map that features where the breweries are based for each issue.

Research is done on the area for landmarks, speciality food/drink and  environmental features to include and the final colour palette is influenced by the cover artist’s aesthetic.


I always enjoy the process of watching how the final map comes together to give an impactful yet informative punch to the page.
