Harry Beck

Harry Beck was an engineering draftsman who had the idea of creating a non-geographically accurate full system map in colour for the London Underground. He believed that passengers riding the trains were not too bothered about the geographical accuracy, but were more interested in how to get from one station to another, and where to change. He designed his map, looking more like an electrical schematic than a true map, on which all the stations were more or less equally spaced.

The team at noat love the map and think it’s the ultimate way of communicating how to navigate the complex network.
