Barcelona Metro 2
Boston ‘The T’
Hong Kong MTR
New York City Subway
Saint Petersburg Metro
Here’s a site which I sourced a few of the pictures. There’s some good info on it too.
Definitely related to my usual topic of discussion, and a huge part of wayfinding and corporate identity for each Metro system. Notice how instantly recognisable many of these logos are? See also this previous post regarding Metro logos from May 2012.
Following on from yesterday’s post, here’s an amazing resource for those of you interested in trains or 1960s corporate design. The Doublearrow website showcases almost the entire British Rail Corporate Identity Manual… not just its original 1965 release, but also additions and amendments released throughout the years, all the way up to 1985. This comprehensive document covers just about every aspect of the BR identity, from the symbol and typefaces through station signage, vehicle livery and staff uniforms. Definitely worth checking out!
Metro Logos of the World
Slightly tangential to my usual posts, but cool nonetheless. The Metrobits.org website showcases around 170 Metro logos (and other train systems as well - Sydney’s CityRail is most decidedly not a Metro, but is shown) all one page. As you might expect, there’s a lot of variations on the letter “M”!
