modern map makers

November 13, 2012

A boring but money-making college job eventually put Tony Rodono on the map.

At the University of North Carolina (UNC), Rodono started a traffic counting business.While counting cars, he sketched each intersection and labeled landmarks. It was then Rodono began to see the interesting patterns that streets create.

After graduation from UNC in 2002, he and his future wife Katie moved to Atlanta. When their daughter was born last year, the couple decided to refocus – and started City Prints.

The company makes colorful, detailed maps of university campuses in school colors (above), ballparks, pro-football stadiums and the all-new college stadiums. It can also map your hometown, home state or favorite international city.

For the Rodonos, who recently moved from Atlanta to Charlotte, where they grew up, maps prompt memories and stories of the important places in our lives.

Unframed prints ($40) are 12 inches by 12 inches. Prints also can be custom framed and ready to hang for $180.
