Berlin Subway Map Redesign

Tom Hayes redesigned the Berlin rail system map which contains both over ground and underground lines. Central to the map a circular and direct shape is used, then branching all of the other lines through dissecting the centre of this circle. This allows for the map to be more iconic and memorable. The logo and iconic elements were also recreated.

Hayes’ has adapted Henry Beck’s original design, putting a twist on the geography of the map. With this work as inspiration I will create a map with similar elements. I have no geographical map to actually follow, this allows me to shape the map in any way I want.
