The London Underground

Some may see this as a confusing mess, a rainbow of colors, or a useful map. I suppose I see it as all the above, but I also see it as a beautiful piece of informational art and design (like most designers). I love the simplicity of something so complicated. The grid layout, angles, and usefulness are things of beauty.
