KERNOW MAP CO.
Established in 2018, Kernow Map Co. is a collaboration between a graphic designer and a surf instructor. Together they have designed their first map: a Surf Map of Great Britain, which locates over 200 surf spots around the country. They have lovingly researched and designed this map, consulting local surfers from England, Scotland and Wales along the way.
The company is dedicated to keeping the production of their maps local, so all their maps are printed in small batches in Wadebridge and their framer is based in Bodmin. They are also committed to keeping their business plastic-free, and their packaging has been designed with this in mind. Everything is send out in tubes free from plastic lids, and the bubblewrap used for framed prints is biodegradable.
10% of Kernow Map Co.’s profits are going to support the work of Sea Sanctuary. When it came to deciding which charity the business wanted to support, they were a natural fit. Like Kernow Map Co., they are based in Cornwall and passionate about the therapeutic benefits of the ocean.
The second map is currently underway – to be announced in the upcoming months!
The Surf Map of Great Britain is A2 size, and printed on 220gsm paper, and certain elements are highlighted in metallic gold ink. The print is priced at £50 unframed; framed prints start at £95.
NB Last order date for Christmas for unframed prints is 14 December 2018.
