Zoom In: Minimalist MTA Icons

August 30, 2013 | Aymann Ismail

ANIMAL loves minimalist icons, but before their various uses on the internet, this iconography served purely utilitarian purposes. The MTA uses tons of minimalist icons to show daily commuters where not to go, what not to do with the doors and where the rats and pesticide are. Let’s take a minute and admire them purely for their design aesthetics in the gallery above. Check back every Friday for a new photo essay. (Photos: Aymann Ismail/ANIMALNewYork)
