Happy new year! After our refreshing (well, rainy) Christmas excursion to London, you can look forward to a few London-related posts over the next few weeks. To kick things off, let's head inside.. The interior colour palette of Talo Luck is loosely inspired by what might be described as one of the greatest accidental examples of graphic art ever created - the schematic transit map of the lines and stations of the London Underground, AKA the Tube Map. First designed by London Underground employee Harry Beck in 1931, and introduced to the public in 1933, its basic design concepts, especially that of mapping topologically rather than geographically, have since been widely adopted for other transit network maps around the world. Over the years, it's undergone many revisions and additions, both in terms of lines included, symbols used, and colours employed. The current map makes use of 21 different colours from the official Pantone colour palette, and you can expect to see many of these present in Talo Luck. We might even include a whole map somewhere :) More maps from Transport for London. Bonus: piccie of some classic London-ness from the London Transport Museum below. London-tastic.
