Mapping Amusing Stereotypes Across the Globe

Yanko Tsvetkov’s Mapping Stereotypes project looks at the world’s misguided opinions about their neighbors far and wide. The Bulgarian-born, London-based designer entertains what Americans — who exist in the “civilized world” — really think about the rest of the map. (Hint: California is loaded with “fake boobs and oranges” and Alaska is land of the hockey moms.) Tsvetkov’s works also poke at Europe’s stereotypical worldviews, adding what the Vatican feels about those “frigid women” and where gay men go to drink “posh beer.” Click through for some amusing impressions.
