25 Transit Map Design Finds

From Elegant Commuter Couture to Typographic Metro Art Pieces

— August 29, 2014 — Art & Design
Whether looking at the transit map for Toronto, New York or Tokyo, one will find that each of the way-finding systems are incredibly graphic in their design.

Serving as the inspiration behind countless art works, fashions and spatial accents, these transit map designs celebrate the topography of urban landscapes.

Memorable examples from this list include Jimmy Choo's limited edition Candy clutch that is adorned with a graphic of Toronto's TTC subway map. The statement accessory was designed in a limited edition set that celebrates the brand's newly-opened Toronto store, located in Yorkdale Shopping Centre.

Another fan favorite from this list of metro map designs is Ray Ban's limited edition subway Wayfarer model that is adorned with a print of New York's iconic underground transit system.
