Moscow Subway Scheme Experiment

Subway map

Concept. RIA Novosti. Art direction: Ilya Ruderman


My map "Moscow like a New York" is just a part of a big project. Two years ago RIA Novosti participated in the tender for the design of Moscow metro scheme. Our team was divided in a few groups. Some of us have been developing the main competitive scheme. Others made a separate project. Project-research. Old subway maps in Russia and in other countries have different ways of detailing and styling. Therefore in the end of the research we've got a lot of Moscow subway schemes: in a style of 30's, 60's, 80-s, Berlin, London, Madrid and New York. For all participants it was a very good experience. For me too.
