Showing the world maps can be both informative and beautiful

Welcome to my little mappy corner of the internet!

I'm Robert, a GIS Analyst / Digital Cartographer from Hungary. After a couple of uninspiring jobs in cubicles around England I've decided that my time could be better spent than generating even more profit for multinationals and people seven steps up the ladder whom I never even met. I took a deep breath and decided to spend my time and money volunteering my mapmaking skills for NGOs instead and started alternating money saving stints in England with 2-6 months volunteer positions around the world. Amongst others I've worked for archaeologists on the tiny Caribbean island of St. Eustatius, with marine biologists in Alaska, and in an orangutan conservation program in Indonesian Borneo. These trips made me grow both personally and professionally, while helping with causes that matter.

My next great adventure was starting Grasshopper Geography which actually grew from some hobby projects and maps I shared online. After the good people of the internet instantly started asking where could they buy my work and seemed to genuinely like them, I wasn't just surprised and overwhelmed, I also knew this could be the chance to make a living from my passion: making artistic maps for all to enjoy. So here we are. I'm working really hard to bring you fresh, colourful, eye opening and scientifically accurate maps in the highest quality possible. For this to happen I left my office jobs behind and now I am focusing full time on Grasshopper Geography, although I haven't given up hope that some time down the line I'll able to go and volunteer again for new NGOs around the world. Again, welcome to my little mappy corner of the internet! I'd love to hear what you think and thank you so much if you decide to support me by buying my maps or sharing my site on social media.

I'm open to commissions, so don't hesitate to send me a message if you have a particular map in mind! I'd be happy to try and make it for you.
