Big Congrats Torstan! I assume the members of the Cartographers Guild will be receiving out invitations electronically then?
The internet! It\'ll never catch on.

Congratulations! The map is clear and attractive. The kerning on your font gets a little crazy in places, especially the word "Ring" at the top. The ing are very close together, and the leg of the R pushes it away from the rest of the word. Add the road running right through that gap, and it just looks peculiar.
You may want to add a compass just in case someone gets turned around and doesn't know the local geography well.

I haven't been to Oxford in nearly 20 years, and I could follow your map, but then again I got knocked off my bike at the Charlbury and Linton RD junction the last time I was there, so it kind of sticks out, perhaps I shouldn't have had 2 Mann's Ales with my cheese.
Congratulations, and be careful crossing the road, I am sure that red head is still out there. SeerBlue
Thanks all for the congrats and the comments. Yes there will be cake, and of course the invitations are in the electronic post (cough).
Thanks for the catch on the road going through the text. The font does have pretty strange kerning, but I rather like it. I;ve fiddled with it in a few places but in this instance I'll let it slide.
Here's an updated draft:
Seerblue - yes riding a bike in Oxford is a bit of a death trap. It's the buses you need to watch for, they're on a mission.
