What's The Story

Massimo Vignelli's subway diagram is a hallmark of modernist elegance, distilling New York's huge, complicated transit system into a sequence of straight lines, rainbow colors and black dots. New York City's offical subway map from 1972 to 1979, the diagram remains iconic in the design world. In 2011, it was repurposed for the digital age, serving as the basis for the MTA Weekender app and website. Not only responsible for the map, Vignelli also established the graphic standards still used today throughout the subway system.
