A celebration of distance

Moving back from the Netherlands, the Roche family wanted to create a world map for their son so that he could have some comprehension of the scale of the world and where he is from.

A celebration of distance

Pale blue greys are very popular in the Netherlands. They are often paired with fun kitsch like red and white gingham and rose patterns, often seen in cafes and homes all over the country.

Resene Eskimo with 2 teaspoons of Resene Frozen to make it a touch brighter was just the colour they were looking for. This gives a modern look that contrasts well with the white of the map, without being too dark.
