Lineposters – Art in Transit

Posted by // October 18th, 2012 // Graphic Design No Comments »

Lineposters is a collaboration between two New Yorkers; Cayla, a graphic designer and John, an engineer. They design and manufacture a wide range of modern, minimalist posters representing rapid transit systems from across the world.

After the success of their original New York City Subway poster, the duo decided it was time to launch the project from a hobby into a business.

Screen print versions of the artwork are screen printed by hand in Brooklyn and are printed on paper from the French Paper Company, a paper mill based in Michigan that was founded in 1871. Every poster follows the simple formula of a single ink contrasting with the colour of the paper. Alternatively, black and white litho prints are available with these versions offset printed in Queens.

These stylish posters would suit any setting from living rooms to offices. We hope their next release includes the MTR system in Hong Kong.
