Through her design studio Dirt Alley Design, San Francisco based artist Michelle Chandra created a colorful and playful series of mazes based off of Manhattan, Brooklyn and other city street maps. Each of the maps is available in multiple colors, sizes and styles. According to the artist herself, here is how they are made:

  • First, Michelle chooses a city and downloads the city street data
  • Michelle draws the puzzle maze on top of the street data (removing streets to make the maze less complex!) and tests the maze is challenging to solve with friends and family
  • Michelle screen prints each maze print by hand using a home-made vacuum screenprinting press built by Michelle's dad, Umesh

Check out the full range of maps available over at her Dirt Alley Design online store.
