Creative Review: 150 years of Underground design
The London tube celebrates its 150-th birthday this year, for Creative Review the reason to make this the theme of the current issue: “the history of the London Underground is the history of visual communications.” In more than 40 pages the magazine tells the story of the tube, in a variety of features. On the famous tube map, used since the 30’s, originally designed by Harry Beck. On the Underground typeface by Edward Johnston, first appearing in 1917. And on the development of the Underground logotype. And more. That makes this issue a must have: for lovers of London, for lovers of the tube, but most of all: for lovers of excellent corporate communications.
