London Underground Map

A design classic.

Connection is the Thing

1932-1933 Throw away scale, throw away geography, connection is the thing. Connect with the destination.Harry Beck's mantra as he designed the iconic London underground map . He was rejected many times until the authorities finally gave in and decided to run a limited print of 500 and proved to be an instant hit.What is it you need to throw away, and which connections should you be making?
