Graphic designer Cameron Booth has come up with what we think is an excellent redesign of the Metro system map, Silver Line included. If this map were ever to be adopted, we just hope they'll get metropolitan spelled correctly.
From Booth's post about the current Metro map:
If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good Metro/Subway/Underground map. Some of them are design classics and really shouldn’t be messed with (London especially). Others have flaws, but are mostly tolerable (Boston not naming all stations on the Green Line really annoys me, but the rest of the diagram is quite well done).Check out the full post on his site, which includes more analysis of the current map and more detailed looks at his creation.
And then there are the diagrams that I simply can’t abide.
And, at the moment, foremost amongst those is that of the Washington, DC Metro system.
