Urban transit artists
Locale:
Brooklyn, New York

“We design modern, graphic interpretations of iconic mass transit systems. We use the transit maps of varying cities as inspiration to create something unique rather than tracing the map or simply dropping out the extraneous information from it.”

If couple ever seemed destined to make beautiful, minimalist art out of public transportation maps, it would have to me Cayla and John. See, Cayla is a graphic designer and John is an engineer. They happened upon the idea when they moved to New York started searching for some transit artwork that fit their aesthetic, but came up empty handed. They decided to transform a line drawing that Cayla had previously created into a custom large-scale vinyl decal. Viola, you’ve got Lineposters. One part urban planning, one part cultural comment, one part minimalist masterpiece.
