2012 MTA New York City Subway Diagram

Super­Warm­Red Designs, founded by for­mer Vignelli Asso­ciates Beat­riz Cifuentes and Yoshiki Water­house, is offer­ing limited-edition signed and unsigned 36” x 45” posters of the MTA New York City Sub­way Dia­gram, designed in 2012 by Mas­simo Vignelli, Beat­riz, and Yoshiki for the MTA’s Week­ender web­site and app.

The 2012 ver­sion is based on Vignelli’s iconic 1972 sub­way map, but it’s been updated based on satel­lite data, and improved for bet­ter leg­i­bil­ity. The poster is printed in Pan­tone and Hexa­chrome inks on acid-free archival cover-weight paper.

Super­Warm­Red Designs will also be releas­ing a series of six posters designed by Vignelli Asso­ciates, that fea­ture tight crops of the New York City Sub­way Dia­gram. The set will be printed in Pan­tone inks on acid-free archival cover-weight paper and will be sold as a set. Look for this series soon.

I really love the detail series. Hop­ing the set will be rea­son­ably priced.

Birds of Minnesota

Happy New Year! I’m back from a needed vaca­tion, fully rested. Hope every­one had a great hol­i­day season.

Birds of Min­nesota is a project by designer Tony Buck­land, that high­lights the birds found in the state. Each bird is illus­trated in a min­i­mal way with­out los­ing its essence. Really lovely collection.

You can pur­chase the posters here.

Neue Norwegian Passport

Oslo based stu­dio, Neue, has been awarded the task of redesign­ing the Nor­we­gian pass­port. I’m not sure if these designs are final, or if it’s just con­cept, but they’re won­der­ful. More gov­ern­ments should embrace great design like this, espe­cially the US.

Hartmut Esslinger Wega

Hart­mut Esslinger is a Ger­man indus­trial designer who founded Frog, and is mostly known for cre­at­ing the Snow White look for Apple dur­ing the 80s.

I per­son­ally love the designs that he did for Ger­man audio and visual man­u­fac­turer Wega, which even­tu­ally became part of Sony. The aes­thetic has a bit of the Braun/Rams feel to it, but it’s also very unique. More organic and fluid. But you can clearly see that Esslinger and Rams had the same approach to prod­uct design dur­ing those days.

See­ing won­der­ful prod­uct design like this always makes me won­der why aren’t more designers/companies design­ing like this. Apple has proven that con­sumers appre­ci­ate beau­ti­ful, min­i­mal design, so why do we see so much ugly shit? I don’t understand.
