London’s diagrammatic Underground map, first devised in 1931 by Harry Beck, can truly be described as a design classic. Over time, the map has evolved from tracing the first railways in the Capital to encompassing an integrated network that covers ever growing distances. Today it is distributed for free by Transport for London (TfL) and appears in different formats.

Despite being under the eyes of passengers daily, the story of this iconic map is difficult to appreciate at first glance. Click on the button below to read more about the iconic Tube map.

Poster artist of the month: Abram Games
Our second poster artist of the month is Abram Games, who designed posters for London Transport from 1937 to 1976. In 1942, he was appointed an official war poster artist, and created around 100 posters promoting the war effort.

Games developed his stylised designs by sketching them in miniature to check the impact they would make at a distance. You can explore his sketches and artworks in our Global Poster Gallery.
