I’m Julie Witmer
and I make maps.
A GPS can show you where you are and a route to your destination, but a map helps you explore. It shows you the possibilities in your journeys. I discovered this on road trips to Florida as a child, when I’d have my finger on a map, following along the route and suggesting stops along the way.
After years in a cubicle farm I knew I wanted to create something. I love planning trips, even helping others plan trips, with maps spread out on the floor. When I learned I could study cartography and make maps, it’s like a light turned on!
Since 2013 I’ve had the pleasure of creating custom maps for local associations, publishers, authors, small business owners, non-profit organizations, and municipalities. Many of my clients begin with little or no knowledge of the map-making process, but that’s never been an issue. My goal is to make your experience informed, easy, and enjoyable from start to finish.
If you want someone to help you get the best map for your needs, you can talk to me. I love travelling and enjoy exploring my city on foot or by bike. I have used many different kinds of maps and can help you work out what needs to be on the map and what to leave off. Let’s create something amazing together!
