This print of the MTA New York City Subway Diagram was designed in 2012 by Vignelli Associates and is used in the MTA’s Weekender website and app. Using concepts from Massimo Vignelli’s iconic Subway Map design of 1972, the new diagram was rebuilt for greater clarity and legibility. Revised to reflect the current subway system, colors and nomenclature, the poster has been printed in vivid Pantone and Hexachrome inks on acid-free archival cover-weight paper. This soon to be iconic design is slated to be included in the Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection.

 

A hand signed edition of approximately 250 prints is also available.

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.
