Best of Kickstarter: 468 New York Subway Stations and 1 Epic Poster


Designer Hamish Smyth and the Kickstarter expert, the one they call “The Crowdsourceress”, Alex Daly, are releasing an 11 colour limited edition poster, licensed by the MTA, printed in Italy, and only available through Kickstarter! The poster features all 468 subway stations in New York City drawn in alphabetical order.

You may recall Hamish was one of the designers behind that other wildly successful Kickstarter, the one for the Graphics Standards Manual; they’re using the same Italian printers for this poster.

Alex’s company Vann Alexandra helps projects reach their funding on Kickstarter and boasts a 100% success rate so I’m sure they’ll have no trouble funding this one. *EDIT – this project has already reached it’s funding goal in one day.

Check it out on Kickstarter.

It’s been a while since I bought a skateboard but this series of VHS inspired decks by New York brand 5BORO is fantastic. If anyone knows who designed them please let me know (I searched for a design credit for awhile and came up with zilch).

*Edit – The designers behind these boards are Mark Nardelli, Matthew Tapia, and Max Vogel Razauno. Thanks to Gerry, Daniel and David who helped me track them down via Facebook.

Have a closer look at each deck below.
