30 Amazing Cornfield Maze Designs

When we consider design mediums, most often our minds imagine posters, brochures, websites and architecture.  All of these take skill, talent and hard work to craft masterful design; but they’re not the only examples of great design.  Every October, thousands of cornfields across the U.S. are transformed into intricate mazes, and it all begins with design.

Cornfield maze design bears distinct challenges. First, the designer has to create a design within the constraints of the cornfield layout and the limitations of the machinery used to implement the design. Second, they must create a series of interconnecting paths, some with dead ends, some not, in an interesting manner to keep cornfield maze customers busy and entertained. Finally, the most masterful cornfield maze designers are able to include these features within a design that actually makes a picture, distinguishable only from a raised platform or plane (or Google Earth!).

Cornfield maze design isn’t simply drawing a picture: It requires a strategic approach to ensure the design can be implemented and that the overall purpose of the cornfield is maintained throughout.  That’s why the best cornfield mazes represent incredible design artwork and engineering.  To salute cornfield maze designers as unsung heroes of the design world, I’ve listed 30 amazing cornfield maze designs here.
