Design Icons:the Tube Map

The first diagrammatic map of the Underground was designed by Harry Beck in 1931. It has become a design classic. Clear, easy to understand. Iconic. Which is perhaps why there are so many variations on it. I recently wrote about a mash-up that put pubs in relation to tube stations. Very handy.

Well, I've just come across this version which Vodcaster created based on the 250 best movies, as voted by users on the 19th of June 2009.
