Calling all graphic designers!

TubeThe tube map is a world famous design icon, pleasing in itself yet incredibly easy to use. So, here's your mission graphic designers out there should you choose to accept: design an equally pleasing and easy to use map of King's Cross St Pancras tube station with its myriad entrances and exits and unsigned shortcuts.

Take one 3D map, combine with detailed information about entrances/exits and how best to board a train together with your own research into hidden shortcuts and produce an iconic and indispensable alternative map giving the shortest possible routes to the KX/StP tube nightmare! Here's an early attempt prior to the opening of the Northern Ticket Hall (perhaps overly ambitious, it attempts to cover all overland lines too), can you do better?

Your prize will be fame and sainthood conferred by the KX community and all KX StP tube users the world over… any takers out there???? Email us here.

    I think with 200 potential interchange routes, this is a (nearly) impossible task. But a clever graphic designer who succeeded could make quite a name for themselves.
