vignelli_map_2008

Massimo Vignelli’s 1972 New York subway map was hailed as an instant graphic design classic. With clean 45 and 90 degree angles, echoing the London underground map designed by Harry Beck. Now it has been updated by the very same designer to include the modern New York subway system. It looks fantastic to my eyes and seams a lot clearer than the present New York Subway map. But not being a new yorker means I cannot really comment on which ones the best. This style seams to work for London. The redesign was commissioned by Men’s Vogue and 500 limited edition printed signed by the designer have already sold out. Are New Yorker’s looking to find a better way home?
