Maptrail (James and Fran)
Maptrail was founded in 2015 by James and Fran. With particular interests in all things maps, data, code and travel, they began creating maps as a fun art project outside their usual day jobs. Having moved from a flat to a house they found themselves in a new place with an opportunity to fill the empty walls with artwork. James set about tinkering with geo data and rendering custom map prints for their walls. After some initial interest from friends and family, they were encouraged to set up Maptrail with the aim of offering gallery quality wall maps of anywhere in the world.
Born and bred in the north (of London and England) moving to the south-east took some convincing. However, we've not looked back since we made the leap. We love the vibe of Brockley, the community and the abundance of green spaces and cafes in the area. You'll often find us having a drink at the Royal Albert, eating in one of the cafes or stomping around Hilly Fields trying to get our little one to sleep!
