Why We Love It
Nautical charts like this one embody a remarkably refined, restrained, and efficient design. They communicate large amounts of information quickly and with a very high degree of accuracy. In fact, charts like this are legal documents bound to the strictest standards. When we think about the complex business of moving people and cargo around the world, we realize that “getting it wrong” has serious consequences. We love how this chart gets it right by literally making the invisible visible.
