WMATA Metro Map Redesigned by Creator
WMATA (Washington Metro Area Transit Authority) needs some updates and additions to the iconic map it’s been using for the last 30 years, and to make the changes they brought in the original designer, Lance Wyman. It’s nice to see them going back to the person who created it, and not some new designer looking to make his mark and alter things.
The article is a good one, goes into some of Lance’s work, the difficulties of the redesign process, and some history behind the original map. Did you know Lance wanted to make cool little icon illustrations for every station? All that and more in the article, as well as a nice photo gallery.
