Hi,
For those of you designing simple map diagrams here’s a new clear-cut palette that you may like to try.
Easy to implement with a nice clean visible effect.

As well as the diagram below there is a test print sheet available here (PDF):

Take care and good luck with all your mapping endeavours.

Thanks for posting this Kevin—always good to see others palettes styles etc.

On enote is your makeup for the black text—seems very heavy on ink to me and I think you would get just a 'deep' a black if you just made the text 100%k set to overprint as you would get the 40%c or 100%c coming through from the sea/land fills but would have perfect text registration by only having the text on the black plate.

Apart from that it seems a clear well presented design—the ski tow icon could maybe be refined/simplified a bit more as it seems a little spindly to me (not sure how it would hold up in some print condition).

Cheers,
Sam.

Thanks for taking the time to comment Sam, much appreciated.

All valid points to take into consideration when determining the end product.

I know that there may be some commercial conflicts when publishing material on open source,
but I’m a keen believer when it comes to sharing tips and suggestions that may benefit others
in the business, especially for those just starting out.
The more visual and clear-cut the material presented the better.

I’d like to see more of this on CartoTalk.

Thanks once again for your input.

Kevin Paul
