In 2018 I worked as a graphic designer at quintly, a Cologne-based digital startup. Although it was based in Germany, quintly had an international audience, which was reflected in its work environment.
In one project, I worked as a team leader to create a world map for the quintly HQ meeting room to help it reflect the friendly and international aesthetic that quintly had. On top of making the map, it was my job to create a visual style that would work for both the in-house quintly style and be easy for other designers to use. I also developed the list of different icons and landmarks for the map.
The world map wouldn't not just include the more iconic landmarks, but also landmarks that had significance to quintly's clients and co-workers, like Helinski and Cologne cathedrals.
I personally picked Mt. Verstovia from my own hometown as an icon that would be included.
