Unrealised DC Metro Subway Map Designs by Massimo Vignelli

So this is all rather splendid! We get to see some of Massimo Vignelli Metro Subway Map ideas, even though they weren’t actually used, it was Lance Wyman (check out Lance’s website to see the logo work that he created (snapshot below) that ended up designing the DC Metro Maps.

Even though Massimo didn’t get to do the maps, he did design the signage for the DC Metro Subway, so he absolutely managed to leave his mark!

If you are a fan of Massimo & Lella Vignelli’s work, then you’ll be fascinated by the official Tumblr for the Vignelli Centre:

Unrealized DC Metro map designs. Although Massimo Vignelli, while at Unimark International, designed the signage for the Washington DC Metro subway in 1968, he didn’t design the map (which was designed by Lance Wyman).

But we recently uncovered a variety of ideas mocked up on these presentation boards. We also found some original sketches for the signage! Stay tuned!
