Yesterday, 6sqft brought you this modern subway map redesign by Tommi Moilanen. His version keeps the current map’s basic structure, but infuses it with a bit of Massimo Vignelli‘s famous graphic style. Geographically and systemically accurate, Moilanen’s map also uses thick and thin lines to represent express and local service; tints skipped stops a lighter shade; more clearly locates major transfer points and station names; and includes an easy-to-use legend. Though this all sounds great, some New Yorkers will not want to part with the subway map they’ve gotten so accustomed to — what about you?
