Every hiker needs a checklist.
Like many people during COVID, I became hooked on hiking. Along the way, I fell in love with Wisconsin’s Ice Age Trail and needed a way to check off the segments I’d completed.
Voilà! My Ice Age Trail poster hit the drawing board.
The concept behind this poster included both form and function. I wanted it to be beautiful enough for people to hang on their walls. Yet it also had to serve as a segment-by-segment checklist for hikers challenging themselves to Wisconsin’s natural wonder.
As a designer, my goal was to artistically and legibly fit the necessary content into standard poster sizes. It was also important to give nod to the geological history of the trail. To accomplish both criteria, I fashioned it after vintage maps and printed it on art-quality, eco-friendly paper.

I was looking for art to go in my office that went well with a bold orange accent wall. When I saw this I knew I found it! Now, when I walk in my office every morning, not only do I have a beautiful space, but also a gentle reminder of why I am working and what I do when I am not. Just get up and go!”Leigh
