The New York Subway Map is a perfect example of graphic design making peoples life easier.
The last printshop I worked at printed them on a monthly basis. When I first started checking them for errors I could not help thinking how the heck do people use this. Not living in NYC and looking at that map I thought a person like me would be stuck on the subway for hours before getting to where I was going.
The more I checked the map the more I realized how graphic design has made traversing New York City simple and easy, that is what good design is supposed to do.
