Vlad Gerasimov · 15 December 2008
I love drawing world maps! This time, shape of each country is represented by its name.
Anita · 15 December 2008Ha! The first one this time :)
It's a great idea, Vlad! Loooove it :D
Yuriy Gerasimov · 15 December 2008That's incredible. Really.
Richard · 15 December 2008Super cool.
I gotta buy the poster of this.
Feng Wang · 15 December 2008Full of inspiration!
qubra · 16 December 2008very very interesting :)
James Egli · 16 December 2008Very nice, Vlad! Could you do a dual screen version for Mac?
AMPIT · 16 December 2008I like it very much. Thanks. Perhaps try some other colors as well.
Manyk · 16 December 2008Outstanding Vlad! Thank you so much for this.
Arielle · 16 December 2008One of a kind. One has to be truly an artist to think of doing something like this. Wonderful & amazing.
Tim · 16 December 2008I got a request for your next map. Can you do one where each country is labeled as what the natives of that country call it. For example Spain would be Espana (which the wavy line over the n) while the U.S. would still be called the United States and Germany would be Deutschland I think.
I hate it when I have to say Estados Unidos is Spanish because I think that the United States should be called the United States, I'm sure some people in Europe feel the same way.
Soleil · 16 December 2008Great idea, Vlad!
But where is Armenia? Not even tiiiiny letters, not even a single letter, nothing! You've just cleared out my country from the world map :))) In fact, there is some space, you could add at least an A or Arm... or you risk to lose some of your returning visitors! :P
· 16 December 2008Супер! Мне понравилось
Lukas · 16 December 2008That's so fu**ing awesome :D
marcus · 17 December 2008First to Soleil, do you know how many country's there are in the world... if vlad did put on every country a name, he has to use a microscope to put them there and you for reading it. I thought that Soleil was the french word for SUN,so if you are not happy that there's no letter A on the map of Armenia you have to chance your name to CLOUD, no hard feelings I just wanted to say that...
Second to Vlad, again a lovely masterpiece for us to enjoy...;)
Q: F1,next time?
Grtz from Ostend,Belgium
Leti · 17 December 2008Venezuela looks very nice, thanks Vlad!
Tusnelda · 17 December 2008Different, but I like it! Well done, Vlad!
Ronnie · 17 December 2008Hawaii???
Stas · 17 December 2008Soleil, если уж на то пошло, то для Азербайджана там места больше ;-).
wjy · 17 December 2008perfect！
Warofart · 18 December 2008Amazing concept. Well executed.
Vincent · 19 December 2008No Dual screen
감사해요~ · 19 December 2008good~!
Thom · 19 December 2008Any chance of a tutorial? please please please please!!
birol · 20 December 2008vlad this is perfect, really, people will go to buy this as a poster, can you do another work with blue colors?
somebody · 20 December 2008Why there is no word on Taiwan(ROC)?
Taiwan(ROC) and CHINA(PROC) is NOT ruled by one government now.
I hope that everybody can know the fact.
Alexander · 20 December 2008Здорово!!!
· 22 December 2008Interesting! It'd be nice if you recognised Tibet!
· 22 December 2008@somebody: I'm sure it's just a matter of size...pretty hard to fit anything ledgible into the island. A lot of small countries miss out...I'm sure it's nothing against Taiwan!
Joe.. · 23 December 2008waw.. thats creative
Jonathan Schemoul · 27 December 2008No Israel ? :(
Александр · 28 December 2008Суперски
: · 29 December 2008would like a tutorial on the background alone. very nice motif.
Cinzia · 29 December 2008Thank you so much!!! Very very cool (..try some other colors .. yellow... green)
Johan Blixt Dackhammar · 30 December 2008I love this one! And I also think Tim's idea with country names in native languages. Here's a list that could help you with that: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_and_capitals_in_native_languages
z4wil · 30 December 2008Nice artwork Vlad...! Another Map Series :)
Karla · 30 December 2008Me gusta mucho!!!. El manejo de la tipografia y de la creatividad... hacen que se vea sorprendente....
JS · 3 January 2009Nice one Vlad! :)
Soleil, do not say Arm, if he puts that there you will have "Turkey Arm"...I dunno, doesn't sound good :P
Israel, Lebanon and Jordan are missing too...but I cannot fathom how all three can be put in there.
Nikhil Gupta · 9 January 2009Legendary.
Orkhan · 10 January 2009Нет не Азербайджана, не Армении. Не смотря на то что Азербайджан - самая большая страна Южного Кавказа. Интересно :-)
me · 20 January 2009This map is wrong. Canada should go all the way up to the top of the land mass, including all of those islands next to Greenland. That's part of Canada and your map is propaganda!
pete · 31 January 2009sometimes your art makes it very hard to find the right words . its not only unique or beautiful or amazing or talented or or or ...-simply put this is the work of a true genius !
thx for letting us be a part of that :-)
Andrei, Romania · 5 February 2009Great, very good! It's a great idea. Romania is very big and beautiful.
Borno · 6 February 2009HEY!! you completely left out Bangladesh. (the blank space between india and burma). nice wallpaper though.
alireza · 12 March 2009It's cool.
· 18 March 2009very original, i luv it
greetings from Belgium
MIHAELA · 2 April 2009ME A GUSTADOO!
Mark · 9 April 2009And so Tibet gets deleted. swallowed into China, even on maps.....
Саша · 3 May 2009Класс!!
Dani · 17 May 2009amazing!
guppyman · 12 October 2009Soleil, did you know that he excluded not only Armenia, but Monaco, Maldives, The U.A.E, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tibet, Micronesia, Samoa, Polynesia, Palau, Vanuatu, The Mariana Islands, Hawaii, and countless many other nations that deserve the right to leave a mark on the map but can't because they're TOO SMALL!!! Don't blame Vlad for "clearing out" your country.
On this map's scale, which would be about APPROXIMATELY 1cm:1000km, it would be nearly impossible to see your country on it if you don't use a magnifiying glass. BTW, the countries I've listed are either independent sovereigns or federal teritorries.
Vlad Gerasimov · 12 October 2009guppyman: thanks :-)
· 15 October 2009You misspelled Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, and Myanmar.
· 28 October 2009i love this map it's very beautyful!!
SoapMaker · 5 November 2009I use it on my work laptop to escape a bit, I use it on my wife's pc and it finally found its home on my brand new MBP which will be part of the family for the coming RTW trip. This is great, same for the other MAP oriented stuff and I just wanted to thank you and congratulate for the nice job. so MERCI from Paris.
Danyszheartzz · 12 November 2009Bored
Erika · 17 December 2009Very nice but it would be even nicer if it were availble in different backround-colours. Pretty pretty please Vlad or maybe Santa :)
Joe · 28 December 2009I think u missed Alaska as part of USA
Marcos Argentina · 6 May 2010Very nice pic!! really hard work
stav · 18 May 2010hey m8!
I noticed you didn't put Israel on your maps and it really bothered me.
i hope it's just because of it's size and if not ill be happy to hear why.
(BTW you are losing a LOT of potential costumers here in Israel because of that- i know a lot of people who really love your painting and just don't want to fund anti-Israelism)
Spdyrel · 18 June 2010Great wallpaper, had to manually add Israel though.
llledo · 3 July 2010wow
Ksenia · 19 July 2010ho ho ho Russia is very very огромная)
esiak · 14 August 2010hi:) you are featured here: http://esiak-noart.blogspot.com/2010/08/stunning-typography-wallpapers.html
Megan · 9 October 2010Kazakhstan is misspelled.
Immanuel · 25 October 2010Hi,
Can I use your wallpapers for non-profit designs?
· 5 February 2011sichimichia
milly · 27 February 2011very creative... just would like to know- is it intended or not cos your whole world, by colour and way of using letters, makes me think of Africa...
My name · 12 April 2011Cool!
Dogukan Hazar Goksel · 15 April 2011Perfect!!!
Igor · 17 April 2011I am using this as my Mac skin as well as my Blog and Twitter background (igorristic.wordpress.com). I love it, and hope that you are okay with me using it!
· 22 January 2012Istanbul, ...
ash · 4 February 2012Would have loved to buy it but you left out ISRAEL!
Diana · 9 July 2012This is perfect! I am making a card for my friend, and this is sitting in great! THANK YOU!
Marco · 7 January 2013Hey just to made your concept even better. I think that the "U" in USA is taking some of Mexico's Baja Peninsula (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baja_California_Peninsula)
Great wallpaper by the way.
jonnydep · 19 June 2013Как скачать ???
ran · 19 September 2013Thanks!
abolfazl · 4 October 2013i loooooooooooooooooooooooooove iran
Marije · 25 October 2013Hello Vlad, love this map. Do you have the map as vector or bigger than 2880*1800? Would love to have it printed 3mx6m and these files are not big enough. Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
