TTC posters

New TTC posters drive home the pain of transit delays

Despite the fact that the TTC still doesn't have a dedicated merch store (small efforts notwithstanding), the variety of transit-affiliated items available for independent designers never ceases to amaze. Near the top of the heap, in my humble opinion, is local designer Jonathan Guy's TTC font posters, which show off the unique Toronto Transit typeface in a minimalist series that features subway station names. There's not much to dislike about Guy's first designs, but his latest additions add a new element to the series that I suspect will appeal to folks whose relationship with the TTC has included its fair share of inconvenience.

To the same degree that the original posters were iconic in their simplicity, these new delay-oriented posters conjure up all those times when you've been kicked off a train that's going out of service (can't you just hear the operator's voice over the intercom delivering the news) or stranded on a platform waiting on a subway that seems like it will never arrive. The posters retail for $35.95. You can check out all of Jonathan Guy's TTC items here.
