24 Transit Map-Infused Designs

From Gamer Recreated Transit Maps to Subway Skirts

— March 30, 2013 — Tech
Transit maps are delightfully kaleidoscopic and informative visuals that have inspired the design of many different features from fashion to architecture.

They have been placed onto fashion items such as the subway skirt that is completely patterned with the New York City metro map, subway map jewelry as well as the subway pattered leggings and metro map sunglasses.

Furthermore, they have inspired a variety of art forms. Artists have re-imagined the subway maps in expressive ways that reflect their personality and styles. The geographic portraits, graffiti map makeovers and the gamer recreated transit maps are only some of the examples of these art designs.

Other fields where this design has been placed include architecture, home decor, furniture and accessories such as wallets.
