Oregon-based graphic designer Cameron Booth is a mapmaker whose designs we’ve been following from afar. After almost two years of single-handed research and checking and cross checking, Booth has released his latest map project: The Highways of the United States of America. The extensive map features every single current and signed Interstate Highway and U.S. Highway in the contiguous 48 states.
Booth gained over 20 years of design experience in his hometown of Sydney (Australia) before he relocated to Portland where he works as a Senior Graphic Designer at Parsons Brinckerhoff’s Portland office. Alongside his day job, Booth runs Transit Maps, a tumblr dedicated to celebrating transit maps and diagrams from around the world.
Booth’s latest map project takes many design cues from subway maps but is essentially a ‘simplified road map’ that integrates two complex networks based on geography. A fully archival print, the map is inked on Moab Lasal Matte alpha cellulose paper that is acid and lignin-free. The map interconnects each U.S State but can also be divided into individual states and regions and can be purchased on Booth’s online shop.
