The Digital NYC Subway Map — Short Documentary

A revolutionary redesign of New York City’s iconic subway map. Work&Co set out to modernize the transit map and include real-time sources to bring it to a level we’ve come to expect in this digital day and age.

This 10 minutes short documentary directed by Gary Hustwit (from Rams, Helvetica, and more…) captures a great story on the motivations, decisions made, and design tools used to make it happen. If you watch closely you'll notice Sketch, Principle, Storybook, and VS Code being used to design, prototype, and build it.

Check out "The Map" on Vimeo, and play with the tool itself at
