Kickmap by Eddie Jabbour

The New York Subway map is an extremely overwhelming looking piece of design which makes it very difficult to work out where you want to go to, that’s why Eddie Jabbour, Creative Director at Kick Design NYC, decided to devote years of his own time to redesign the map. Like Harry Beck’s concept, Jabbour placed the needs of the user over geographic precision, removing any irrelevant information and focusing on the routes passengers want to know.
