I'm not sure how I overlooked this great site created for the 2003 (or was it 2004?) AIGA biennial conference. The Vancouver Cultural Guide covers shops, nightlife, restaurants, attractions, and outdoor activities, in an interactive grid and contextual map. It also includes useful print and SMS features which allow you to take information with you, either on a printed page or on your mobile phone. Huzzah! I'm surprised the City of Vancouver hasn't taken this over for its own means. Any city could benefit from such a smart, concise and cleverly designed guide.
