Makewell presents…South Brooklyn Curiosity Map

It’s here! Our latest personal project inspired by our summer of travel and love of maps, adventure, history and design: South Brooklyn Curiosity Map!

After recently returning from extensive international and domestic adventures away from our home and office, we found ourselves looking at our neighborhood with new eyes–from a traveler’s perspective. Finding curiosities around every corner, we developed this map of two intersecting walking tours focused on design and history respectively. Explore Brooklyn Heights, Downtown Brooklyn, Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens by foot to discover noteworthy landmarks, celebrity tales, timeless vintage signage and modern street art that make this area much richer in history than might immediately meet the eye.

Makewell Website Launch

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new website! We obviously managed to belabor the process (we are designers, right?) and so the release is well overdue, but we are proud to present our latest and greatest work over at the main Makewell site.

Check out our work over there and feel free to pop back in periodically for updates! There is a lot of fun stuff coming up in the next few months.
