Boston Rapid Transit Map

Boston rapid transit map.

(v. E16-140513)


Re-design of the rapid transit/key bus routes T map. Designed in accordance to MBTA design standards. To simplify an overall impression of the map, I designed it from the scratch, based on set of strict rules. The aim was to create clear, easily readable and usable diagram, representing quite complicated system in as simple form as possible. There was no intention to mimic any particular visual style — in my design form follows function. This approach created some artifacts as a result, like capital B at the heart of the map, or "wing" of Green Line branches. Map still needs some work: water should be smoother and map should incorporate information on walking distances, specially in downtown.
