I've been one of the fabled lurkers for some time, and have thoroughly enjoyed the work and conversations folks have shared. I was hoping someone might help me out with an issue. For a little brochure (the 8.5x11 folded typed) I've been tasked with making a 3x4" map. Here's the background:
• The purpose is to show where this river's watershed is to a general audience familiar with the area, but not necessarily watersheds.
• 3x4 inches
• It will have text or title saying “Anacostia River Watershed”, but no description of the actual location or extent of the watershed (although the size will be included in a river facts section, as well as a definition of a watershed)
• It must contain county lines
Just wondering if anyone can offer ideas how to make this small graphic more useful to readers. Again, thanks to everyone for sharing their great work and knowledge. I'm a bit intimidated posting anything here!
