The Brief:
 
Title: City Project
 
Objective: Choose any aspect of a city which appeals to you and structure your design   around this theme.
 
 Whenever I go to a city, I am struck by the sheer volume of visual stimuli to take in. There is so much going on in a city, especially when compared to rural Ireland! I chose to focus on the London tube, as it has always fascinated me and I wanted to take complex information about the London underground and distill it into beautiful infographics.
I was  really interested in the curvature architecture of the London Underground
I used this as a base structure for the infographic and gradually refined the design
