Please welcome Candice from All Mapped Out:
My name is Candice and I’m a recovering academic. After earning a PhD in Geography, I found that all I really wanted to do was ‘make stuff’. So, armed with formal training as a cartographer and informal training as a picker/collector of vintage wares (under the tutelage of my awesome parents), I took on the new creative path of All Mapped Out in 2012, designing and making geography and cartography inspired home décor and apparel.
I now have a reason to horde maps and atlases and I take full advantage of it! I repurpose ‘outdated’ and vintage maps into coaster sets, using actual maps thoroughly sealed onto ceramic tiles to create one-of-a-kind items of places and themes all over the world.
I also design geography-inspired t-shirts for the map nerd in all of us as well as original designs screenprinted onto vintage maps for one-of-a-kind wall art.
My goal is to teach my love of geography and cartography outside of the classroom through my products while helping folks add a sense of place to their space. Bottom line, I’m a huge map nerd and would love to help you find ‘where’ you’re looking for!
