Google Maps has made a successful name for itself as far as the web-based map services go, and their distinct mapping “droplet” of sorts is recognizable, too. So what better way to make it all the more of a household name than with actual pins to put across any and every city? Make it a birdhouse and you’ve got some real deep design happening here.
“Birds, have the most real experience of google map. Birds can fly through the city, through streets. A birdhouse becomes their destination as google map does.” Designer Shu-Chun Hsiao has taken the concept of these markers and created a birdhouse to tie the maps and our feathered friends together.
