Creating Dartmouth College Campus Map Art

I was creating Dartmouth College Campus Map Art. Dartmouth is one of the world’s most significant academic institutions, and it has a beautiful and huge campus.


Dartmouth College is a famous private Ivy League research university in Hanover, New Hampshire, United States. Established in 1769 by Eleazar Wheelock, it is the ninth oldest institution of higher education in the United States and nine colonial colleges chartered before the American Revolution.


The most popular major degrees at Dartmouth College include Engineering, Social Sciences, Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Mathematics and Statistics, Information and Computer Sciences, and more.


Creating Dartmouth College Campus Map Art, I’ve developed hundreds of working layers. Working on layers helps to keep the map editable. As you can see in the video clip below, I draw everything on its separate layer. Roads, paths, buildings, trees, and everything else is sketched, outlined, and colored on layers.

The illustrated campus map has rapidly become an integral part of the college recruitment process.  It allows students to access information firsthand about a campus’s general layout whenever they are in the world.  Although it is still vital to visit campuses in person, this is not always possible.  The interactive campus map allows students to experience the college to not be able to without this map illustration.

Because this campus map has become so vital for college recruitment centers, there are many factors that a college should consider when they decide to create an illustrated campus map.  There are certain aspects of the map that can make it a valuable tool in different ways.  Some factors will highlight positive or essential elements of the college for prospective students. 


There are just a few ways that the illustrated campus map can be used.

A large billboard campus map can be placed on campus grounds for people to navigate.

It also can be used in brochures as marketing or recruitment materials.

Besides that, a college may use the image for greeting cards and invitations.

College Campus Map Art can be used as a base image, and an interactive campus map posted online.

 However, creating Dartmouth College Campus Map Art, I envisioned it as a piece of art framed on the wall.
