Literal Translation Of Country Names

World Map: The Literal Translation of Country Names / Credit Card Compare

We live in a time of air travel and global exploration. We’re free to roam the planet and discover new countries and cultures. But how much do you know about the people who lived and explored these destinations in times past? Learning the etymology – the origin of words – of countries around the world offers us fascinating insight into the origins of some of our favorite travel destinations and the people who first lived there.

From creative brief to completion, I art directed this exciting project for Credit Card Compare.
