I have come across previously cool posters of London Underground interpretations, and the Underground map can be a true source of inspiration based on the colour, station names, layout and just general excitement London can generate.
Growing up in London, I never really had a true grasp of where anything was physically, and my general consensus of the layout was based on the Underground map. The map however doesn’t give a true reflection of how far the stations are from in each other and there true layout on the city of London, until now….
I came across this brilliant graphic on 10and5.com, and being a true Londoner, it certainly made me smile! I found it a while ago, and it has been sitting on my Desktop, awaiting to be resized and printed so I can hang it up somewhere. Also makes a handy bucket list infographic of all the places to visit in Cape Town.
The graphic was created by Coley Porter Bell – a full-service UK-based design agency. specialising in packaging, corporate identity, innovation, point of decision, online and naming. Their HQ is in the heart of London, close to Paddington Station so I am not sure of their relation to Cape Town, but it is appreciated.
I think my favourite part of all, is the renaming of the Oyster card to Perlemoen…genius!
