Submission - Unofficial Maps: Redesigned Metro Maps of the World

Submitted by Jug Cerovic, who says:

I completed a set of new schematic metro maps of 12 cities using a common standard. I have tried to make easy to read, memorize and use maps but at the same time pleasant looking. Crowded centers are enlarged and specific features such as ring lines highlighted.

You can see all the maps here.

Transit Maps says:

You all know that I love an ambitious transit mapping project, and this is up there with the most ambitious I’ve seen. Jug has taken twelve of the most iconic metro maps out there — New York, Mexico City, Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, London, Berlin, Moscow, Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul and Tokyo — and redesigned them all using a standardised design style, font (looks like DIN) and square format.

Despite the common language, the maps still manage to look unique to their city: no easy feat! Jug has managed to impart a very stylish feel to the maps by the use of large, sweeping curves instead of tight angles. There’s some nice information hierarchy too, with Metro/Subway/U-Bahn lines getting full, bright colours while commuter rail/S-Bahn lines are rendered in muted pastel colours.

I would say that some of the maps are more successful than others (Moscow falls a bit flat for me, while New York is incredibly dense and crowded), but this is still an outstanding example of strong unifying design principles applied well across a wide variety of different transit maps.

You should definitely head over to the project website to view and compare all twelve maps; there’s also prints for sale!

Good observation from redditor hitokirivader who’s montaged together all of the film and TV costumes of DC’s most popular heroes.

Sorry, Zack Snyder, but no swimming trunks makes Superman look a bit too… naked.

Is it weird that the first thing we noticed was how much…

On the plus side, Lynda Carter was fucking ace.

Timelines are slippery, especially in the afterlife. But at some point after dark on March 26, 1989 (or perhaps in the dawn hours of March 27), a blonde teenager named Laura Palmer whispered to Special Agent Dale Cooper, “I’ll see you again in 25 years.” Laura made this vow from beyond the grave, of course, and the unraveling of her murder was the basis for David Lynch’s legendary Twin Peaks.

25 years later is now. Happy Anniversary!
