Solstice Collection starts getting maps

Recently I was approached by John Bird of the stylish London Concierge Services to produce a map for a property they looked after for Solstice Collection ( ).Solstice Collection is the very exclusive, upmarket and premier destination Club in the world. ( ). The map was to be simple, stylish, informative but at the same time a map that could be easily used on the local streets and folded up and slipped into your pocket. The first map of Shad Thames is below/above which the Solstice CEO loved and we are discussing producing maps for all there properties worldwide... no where shall we start..umm Paris, Florence, New York, St Barts, Napa Valley or maybe Costa Rica or Aspen umm ..............
If you have a property that needs a map why not contact us for a quote.
