Creating UVA Campus map Illustration

Rabinky Art has a strong history of creating campus map illustrations for schools and universities, both large and small. Rabinky Art’s approach is unique because we blend the experience of an architect’s handcrafted impression of the school, delivered in a fully layered, state-of-the-art electronic file.

 

First, the map artist uses images provided by the client of different angles and scales. Then, the artist creates a sketch of the campus. Rabinky Art designs the map to showcase the campus’s best features. We also minimize the areas that are less important and emphasize those that are of greater importance. Once the campus illustrated map is ready in line drawing, the artist uses color to bring the illustration to life.

 

The University of Virginia has a vast campus, and it keeps growing every year. It takes almost the whole town of Charlottesville. And as the university is growing, the UVA campus illustrated map is changing every year, and we keep adding new buildings, roads, fields, and complexes.
