I am young artist and graphic designer from Europe. Since 2010, I specialize in creating of various decorative wall-posters and maps. After few years of freelance work for various companies, both domestic and international, I have recently decided to finally start my own full-scale project.
After a major medial boom about my map of the internet, I decided to bring the project into the whole new level. I want to create a fully-interactive zoomable version of the Internet Map, updated according to approximate real-time online stats, and with a wide multitude of clickable interactive elements. It is going to be be available for everyone, both for educational and entertainment use, and will be released both as an android&iOs app, and in the form of an online interactive website.
To succesfully start this, I will need only about 6000 dollars.It is going to be a very complex task to accomplish, I will have to pay multiple people to help me with the project and fully transform the map into a fully interactive digital app. After finished, the app will be free for everybody to download and use.
- To get this project finished and working, 6000 USD will be more than enough. However, if you donate more, it could significantly increase quality of the final products and websites, and I will be able to finish the project in much shorter time.
- To everyone who donates more than $70(€50), I will send free signed poster of the map, on high-quality matte paper.
- To everyone who donates more than $135(€100), I will send free signed giant-size poster of the map, on high-quality matte paper.
- Even if I don't reach my full goal, I will be very thankful for every raised penny. I will still invest all money I get into this project.
Why Map of the Internet?
