Milwaukee Water



Milwaukee Water Works asked me to redesign their Service Area Map (original shown below). The existing map was deemed to be visually stale and uninspired. For the new map I made many additions to add some vitality: I included the most prominent rivers that feed Lake Michigan (all of Milwaukee residents, business and industries rely on the lake as the source of water); I used small vignettes to depict scenes of the most common useages of water by Milwaukee-area residents; I illustrated the major water treatment plants and water towers that either historically or presently contribute to the distribution of water through the communities; the addition of a lake whitefish and a great blue heron are a nod to the animals that also rely on clean water.
