Subway Map Graphics

Zero Per Zero created some down right amazing subway maps for NYC, Tokyo, and Seoul. Their work won them the iF GOLD communication design award 2008.

Each city’s various subway structures and railway systems somehow reflect the character of that city. We thought it should be possible to infuse the character of a city into its subway map while also simplifying the map and creating an attractive design. Through a line map design that captures the character and identity of the city, we can also express this to tourists.
