Subway Car Aesthetics

We like how the purple of the No. 7 Line circle/graphic symbol on the New York City subway system works well with the silvery stainless steel finish of the subway car itself. The number of arts projects and the amount of graphic design that has gone into decoration and visual communication within the subway system is impressive, diverse and first-class (even if subway service itself isn’t) and could easily fill a large museum.
