notNeutral - Map Plates
Some of you might remember these fantastic city map plates from notNeutral that I posted on last month. Well, the plates got such a great response from readers that notNeutral would like to hear more from you! They’re planning to add 4 more cities to the map plate collection for fall, and are looking for suggestions as to what those cities should be….which is where you come in!

There is a theme to the collection – so that should help you narrow it down from the zillions of cities out there. The theme is “Culture and Capitalism” – and the quick summary of what they’re looking for in the chosen cities is this: (as quoted from Julie Smith-Clementi, notNeutral President) “We are looking for four cities that have been greatly impacted by man through the process of urban design/development and capital investment, rather than growth through a slower more organic model.” It might also help to read about how they decided upon the cities that are currently in their collection too. Click here to read that press release (pdf).

So – what city (or cities) do YOU think should belong in the upcoming map plate collection? Tokyo? London? NYC? Tell us what you think – and you’ll be entered for a chance to win your favorite map plate from the current collection! TWO winners will be chosen! Just post your suggestion here by Friday, May 25 at midnight PST. Good luck!

I have to vote for Sydney, Australia. What the human designs/architecture of the bridge and Opera House have done for that beautiful city is AMAZING!

I just thought of another great city. Minneapolis. I love how this city incorporates green space within the city. One great example of that is Minehaha Falls. It’s a great oasis in the midst of the city. It’s also a very organized city.
