We’re well versed in the graphic treasures in and around the London Underground but Adam Chang is on a mission to introduce us to the New York subway system in the same way. His beautifully designed NY Train Project site is in turn a celebration of the beautiful design to be found in the city’s underground stations; from intricate tiling and interesting murals to some terrific typography.
Adam – who runs his own design studio Same Tomorrow – was inspired to start the project when he noticed the tiles at the Bleecker station and it has grown from there to take in 188 of New York’s subway stops.
It’s the presentation that really makes this special and as it’s ongoing we’re looking forward to checking back in again soon.
