You may be familiar with our Richmond type map - it is one of our most popular designs. It was designed years ago by an intern when we were still located in our Main Street studio. Late in 2018, we realized something:
We had left vast sections of the city - primarily black neighborhoods - off of the map.
This was inadvertently racist, but the inadvertent part does not make the racist part any better.
This sent a signal of who we thought was important and who wasn’t. The new map is almost ready - it’s geographically accurate and it includes every single neighborhood in the city of Richmond.
We are offering anyone who owns the previous map a trade for the new version when it’s ready, early in April.
