Hello, I am glad to greet you on my page! My name is Denis, I am from Nikel, Murmansk region in Russia. I have an interest in infographics that visualizes bigger amount of data that we usually used to see on the infographic pictures. I call it "mapographics".

Here are some of my mapographics. On this page I present works designed to be printed on a paper. Some of them are made for various newspapers. Others to be printed standalone and then handed out.

Perhaps you would like to have a map of your location for tourists, a map telling news, map showing statistics? Or it is "how-to-get" chart in your mind? Or even timeline with important events?

In this case you can send a message to me: and I will be glad to materialize your vision on the paper or in the web.
