Created by my brother Adam
and me, Paper Trails
is an online app which allows you to create memorable art prints from your Strava or GPX data of your most treasured adventures and achievements.
I handled the branding and user interface parts, with us both working on the UX together. Avoiding a rigid process, we preferred to develop things as we went which was a lot of fun. We have plenty more features, enhancements and themes lined up, so stay tuned.
We started by building/designing customisable themes using the open-souce visual editor Maputnik
for the Mapbox Style Specification
and now use Mapbox Studio. Going deep into the world of map building which included how to visually rank elements according to different zoom levels was both fascinating and tedious at times 😅
