Purple Lizard is the independent publishing and design firm of Michael Hermann. Purple Lizard is involved in cartographic design projects in many places, but is based in Pennsylvania.
Michael is an award winning map designer with a diverse background; but his favorite genre of map design is recreational maps because what he loves most is recreating. When he isn't drawing trail maps, he likes to explore those trails by foot or on his mountain bike, kayak, canoe or truck.
Purple Lizard: because Michael believes the best part of being a map-maker is actually getting lost in the landscapes he is mapping.
