London Block by Block

London Block by Block was founded by Cierra Block, an illustrator who has lived in London for eight years (NW6!) Cierra loves creating maps and guides of her favourite places in and around London.

Cierra created London Block by Block as a way to organise her favourite things about London. She wanted to create guides that were fun to look at but also provide helpful information. Every map she creates starts with an idea. It might be where are the best pancakes in London? What are my favourite places to go to in Marylebone? What are the best bookstores in London? From there she researches and curates a list to create a useful guide.

Next, Cierra interprets the list into an illustrated map. The combination of utility and design produces a beautiful map that allows people to create memorable experiences. Humans have been using maps for thousands of years as we have no choice but to experience the world spatially. When we look at a map, we can make sense of our surroundings, we intuitively understand the relationship between where we are and where we want to go. The joy of creating my maps is that they are artistic and lovely to look at but also offer functionality and utility. Maps help up make sense of the world around us, and all the better if it leads to a hidden corner of London or a delicious bakery.
