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.

The Clock­smiths is an Ital­ian design stu­dio con­sist­ing of design­ers Giu­ditta Bru­sadelli and Augusto Arduini. They spe­cial­ize in com­mu­ni­ca­tion and brand­ing design and have com­piled an impres­sive col­lec­tion of work. My per­sonal favorite is the work they did for themselves.

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.

NYCTA Graphics Standards Manual Reissue

Remem­ber those fel­las who found an orig­i­nal copy of the NYC Tran­sit Author­ity Graphic Stan­dards Man­ual in the base­ment of Pen­ta­gram? Well, they’re part­ner­ing with the MTA to release a lim­ited run of man­ual through Kick­starter.

It won’t be exactly like the orig­i­nal man­ual. The orig­i­nal is ring bound in binder, but the reis­sue will fea­ture a cloth hard­cover and unal­tered high-resolution scans of each page of the man­ual, all Smyth sewn together. It will mea­sure 13.5” W × 13.5″ H (343 x 343 mm).There will be an intro­duc­tion by Michael Bierut, and an essay by New York mag­a­zine writer Christo­pher Bonanos.

The man­ual will be printed in Italy on 100 and 140 gsm Munken Pure ivory off­set paper. The cover, intro­duc­tion, and essay head­ings will be set in a cus­tom ver­sion of Stan­dard Medium by type designer Nick Sher­man, that he recre­ated from the pho­tographs of the orig­i­nal manual.

This is a great way to get this won­der­ful piece of design his­tory in the hands of more peo­ple. I’ve backed it.
