I'm working on a city map for Super Genius and trying to get the look just right. I'm still not completely happy, especially with the smaller tags. I don' believe the client wants a key, so I'm trying to figure out a way to apply those smaller labels without them leaning at odd angles and curves. Sharing what I already have in the meantime.

The first sketch is the turnover I received from the boss.

The second image is my initial rough, with the roads and builds established.

The final image is Ajinan as it stands now, with the tags that make me crazy to look at..

Any feedback is appreciated.
