For a few years now, I’ve been keeping an eye on the Gel Conference, where people gather to talk about experience, perception and customer service.

One of this year’s speakers was mapmaker Connie Brown of Redstone Studios. Her one-off painted maps show not just geography but perspective. In her 20-minute presentation, she shows us how maps are both descriptive and opinionated. It’s worth watching, whether your preference is for the science or the art of cartography.
