TTC pop culture

TTC pop culture project reimagines subway platforms

While the TTC has escaped corporate rebranding efforts on station platforms, a Toronto designer has dreamed up a way to inject a bit of pop culture into our daily commute. Put together by Trevor Twells, the TTC pop culture project is a fantasy exercise that uses station names as a spring board to bring characters like Frank Castle and George Costanza onto the platform.

Even for those who think we're already saturated with pop culture iconography, it's a fun little project that serves as a reminder that some TTC stations could really use a splash of creative design to spruce things up. And while these would be a way-finding nightmare, I have to say that the Drake entry in the series is just great. Here's a few more examples from the project.
