Butlins Resorts

Clear and crisp map illustrations by Mike Hall are commissioned for a visitors app.

Mike was commissioned by Bourne Leisure - the owners of the famous British holiday resort chain Butlins, to design vector-based, isometric maps for each of their resorts - Bognor Regis, Minehead and Skegness.

To be used as an app for visitors, they were drawn entirely using Adobe Illustrator and were designed to be fully interactive, easily navigable and geographically accurate, with georeferencing applied by the app developers for accurate GPS data. Mike adds, "They were also intended to be bright, colourful and retro to match their new branding.

Another key feature of the app reveals itself when the user zooms into each map: the central Pavilion roof 'opens' to reveal the shop and restaurant layout beneath and the names and unit numbers of each accommodation block appear."

New Artist Katherine Baxter Joins Début Art

Ever since Katherine Baxter was a child, she's been fascinated by looking at the world from above, whether it was a model village or from the top of the Empire State Building. Ever since leaving Bath Academy of Art, it's been her inspiration in creating pictorial maps, aerial views and architectural vistas of cities, towns, and villages all over the world, although London and New York are top of her list. She has been lucky enough to have been commissioned by a number of clients including The Times, The Radio Times and The Daily Telegraph to explore and illustrate large areas of London, and it still gives her joy to create something new....... She illustrates using traditional drawing methods, her trusty Rotring pens are a constant companions, although she does use the computer for colouring and creating digital files, her passion still lies in the actual mark making of pen on paper.

She has worked with a wide range of clients from Children’s book publishers , newspapers to Advertising agencies. She is commissioned not simply for her drawing, but her creative and narrative ability to interpret a brief beyond the basic product of cartography, this includes many things like research, planning and composition....her main aim is to create something beautiful that is informative in nature, and urges the viewer to retain it as a keepsake!
