HERBIG IDEA is a creative studio comprised of WHITNEY LYLE and SAM HERBIG. Whitney is a designer who loves to create books, packaging, and do more crafty projects in her spare time. Sam is a film electrician who loves to take photos tirelessly, while finding time on the side to create maps in various mediums (a long-standing hobby, starting with his 3-d topographical map of his hometown, Tübingen, Germany in elementary school).

Together, Whitney's big picture ideas and Sam's impeccable attention to detail, they pull prints in a print shop or set-up a makeshift photography studio. They love to generate ideas and find ways to execute them. 

Map Box

The first time I came across was via their own gallery (if you care about maps, you would be doing yourself a disservice, if you didn't check them out). I was immediately enamored with their map editing tool, Mapbox Studio and tried to create some of my own map styles.

Whenever I get a chance, I try to sit down and work on a style, but to be honest I get to do it way too little. :-(
