Graphic Designer Turns Transit Networks Around The World Into Minimalist Maps

These illustrations of the world’s subway systems by American graphic designer and self-professed transit nerd Peter Dovak are not just marvelous, they are also eye-opening. Called ‘220 Mini Metros’, the series comprises of 220 metro and light rail systems from cities large and small that have been “shrunken and simplified” into minimal line drawings enclosed in a circle.

Each illustration follows a set of requirements: lines and spaces between parallel lines must be of a standardized width, while diagonals must be angled at 45 degrees.
