The London Tube = Design Icon

The tube is a symbol of London and is part of its identity. These three design features are a registered trademark to London and made it a global icon, just unique

  • The TUBE MAP by Harry Beck.
  • The logo is known as the ROUNDEL.
  • The JOHNSTON typology is used on posters and maps.

The Tube map was devised by Harry Beck, who created this design in 1931. Its schematic style makes it easy to understand a complex transport network (it's schematic because it does not follow the distance scale).

This map design was copied by all the underground and railways companies in the world.  The model is used in other fields such as aeronautics. The creator,  Mr. Beck, was employed by the railway company. The first time he presented the map,  it was rejected.

The Roundel is the underground´s logo. Its circular design with a red, white, and blue stripe in the centre dates back to 1900. It was inspired by the posters of the Paris tube.

Finally, the trilogy is completed by the "Johnston" typology, which can be seen on the map and all the Underground signage, extending its use to the Overground and the railways that are part of TfL (Transport for London). This typology was designed especially for the tube.
