The Map Maker – Non Traditional Navigation

maps

The site that I found was http://www.fantasy-cartography.com/

I have a soft spot for illustrator websites and this one is really great. I have everything I need to know about the artist right at my fingertips without anything complicated. I can see all of her(?) works right on the page instantly and the navigation is part of the art, which is what is most important about looking at an illustrator’s website. I don’t need to know they have fancy web skills (although – really, not bad!). 

My only complaint is the lightbox can be a bit slow when looking at works but that’s not particularly a navigation issue. 

Also, if you delve deeper there’s a little mini game in the website to find a secret page when you click on the little houses and villages. Cool!
