Day two of Design Week Tallahassee started off with our visiting speaker, Amy Lee Walton! A cartographer and designer, she began the morning teaching a workshop on how to use Mapbox. Students created their own custom maps using Mapbox Studio, and practiced changing up the coloring, user interface, data, and more in their projects.
After the workshop, Amy Lee talked about her work as both a designer and cartographer, sharing her projects with the audience. The future of digital mapping is wide open and there’s a lot more to learn from it still!
The last event of the day was the first ever Design Week Walking Mural Tour!
Our group took a tour of the beautiful public spaces and art around Tallahassee, starting off in the Gaines Street area and circling around to Downtown.
The timing of the walking tour was perfect as the new Capital Cascades pedestrian bridge was just officially opened to the public that evening. The group was one of the first to walk across it, joining the runners of the official opening bridge race!
All in all it was a great second day of Design Week. Nothing lovelier than a beautiful sunset over the bridge.
