Our story begins with a failed business idea that turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
It all started in the winter of 2017 when we felt a need to decorate our spaces with personal art, with true meaning. Sure, there were plenty of good-looking stock posters on the market, but they came without meaning. They were nice to look at, but, at the same time, extremely boring to look at.
So, we started to think about how personal posters could become a reality. At first, we looked to create posters for couples and families that would change shape and color based on user input such as names, the number of family members, date of marriage and so forth. Although we liked the idea, it became clear to us that it was a hard task to create graphical representations of families and couples that were good-looking and truly unique at the same time. We decided to drop the idea and moved on. Luckily, this was all it took for us to turn to custom map posters and to create Mapsery. In retrospect, we’re happy that our first idea didn’t work out, because this one did.
