This colorful geometric map of U.S.A was designed by a Massachusetts-based graphic designer named Ryan of Midnight Umbrella. His use of geometric figures composed the entire structure of the United States with a simplifies shapes. It was inspired by the ancient Tangram Chinese Puzzle that depicts flat edges with shades of different hues.

These shapes are mostly squared or rectangular in size with the idea of forming large structure of the map. They are also spaced out in between to refine the edges with flat surfaces. This unique interpretation of the map of U.S.A shows simplicity and catching colors that make it visually appealing for those to understand the map. The gradient hues also enhance the structure of each state.
