Bathymetry By OddHero

Inspired by looking at maps & atlases as kids, OddHero has created a set of prints capturing the color palettes of three oceans: Mediterranean, Pacific Ocean & Indian Ocean.

Bathymetery Prints

“The first in our series for those who, in school, were mesmerized by old atlases and maps. And in particular, the ocean depths. The Mediterranean is warm and shallow, but treacherous and its bed is littered with thousands of wrecks.”

“Second in the series, the Pacific Ocean has crushing depths, so the blue scale is mixed with inky black.”

“Third in the series is The Indian Ocean. In depth, it’s between the warm shallow choppy Mediterranean Sea and the cold dark Pacific.”

Curios Children Prints

“In our Color range of prints for curious children, devised because you never want to hear yourself answering “because it is” when asked. Please note – we skipped the part about different colors having different wavelengths. Even as adults, we struggle with that bit.”
