We need ONE illustration of downtown San Diego for our website with the 7 neighborhoods within it reflected: Little Italy, Columbia, Marina District, Gaslamp, Cortez Hill, Banker's Hill and the East Village. This will appear on our website as a interactive tool for visitors to use to search properties in each of these neighborhoods.
Visit http://www.isellthecity.com to see the map we currently are using. We find it to be too bright and childish. We'd like something cleaner, more sophisticated and more professional. We have a minimalist aesthetic, our color palette is white, gradient blues and shades of greys but we like the idea of using more attractive and mature colors or perhaps just dividing lines to distinguish the different neighborhoods.
Please demarcate some of the main landmarks like the ocean, the 5 freeway, Horton Plaza and Balboa Park - please refer to pdfs/jpg attached. I think showing streets will make the design too busy so we'll just use colors or dividing lines to indicate the borders of each neighborhood. FYI Myriad Pro is our go to typeface - attached.
We will need this ultimately sent to us as a .psd file to give to our web girl to code properly and have all the layers to click on and off when setting up the site. If we like your design, we have a couple other map designs, including a detailed print version to hand to clients, we would like to commission work on.
