MEET THE MAN WHO STARTED IT ALL
Simon has a clinical case of wanderlust - lucky for him he works in the world map business. Awesome Maps began when Simon was searching for a world map of top surf spots, and there were none to be found.
AND NOW MEET...
...THE GUYS WHO MADE IT HAPPEN
Our tech superstar Timo & awesome illustrator Lars
Simon had a problem. He went to business school. So he needed to find someone to (1) draw the first map and someone (2) to set up a website. Timo and Lars were optimistic enough to buy into the idea and they have been there every step of the way.
...OUR CEO AND BEST SURFER
Katharina and Simon met in Bali and their love for maps and travel made things easy. Katharina leads product development, strategy & operations!
...THE MULTI LINGUIST
She speaks 5 languages fluently! Sara takes care of our orders & customer support and she's the reason you might think we're a Spanish company if you write to us in Spanish, a Portuguese company if you write to us in Portuguese or an Italian company...you get it! She speaks it all!
...THE ONE WHO CAN'T SWIM
Every time you see some amazing content from us, Luana is probably the creative mastermind behind it. She takes care of the Insta, organic marketing, partnerships and the website.
...OUR SURFING TECHIE
Mihaela takes care of our paid marketing, all things analytics, as well as coding. She also loves to surf, which makes us the company with the only two techies in the world who surf!
Plus our extended team! A community of designers, illustrators, web developers and explorers working on helping you discover your world. We work from all over the world, including Cologne, Berlin, Hamburg, Madrid, Lisbon and Asia.
The only products we make are those we’re deeply passionate about and we think it shows. Each map is meticulously researched by experts, hand-illustrated by our favourite designers and printed with love in Berlin. The result is a beautiful and informative high quality print for your home, workplace, van, or backpack.
