Transport for London Johnston Poster Series
The iconic Johnston typeface – used on the London Underground – is now approaching it’s 100 year anniversary. To celebrate this landmark Transport For London worked with Clerkenwell Design Week to commission a series of posters. Designers who took part include Alan Kitching, Build, Magpie, Monotype, Pentagram partners, Sawdust, SEA, Studio Frith, Studio Parallel, The Beautiful Meme and Thomas Matthews.
The results are a varying range of graphic styles, from the minimal modernist graphics of SEA to hand painted style of The Beautiful Meme. Each with its own merits, and all coming together to create a celebratory collection.
