Hiroden Map


Today I’m Russian.

First serious attempt at a Russian/Ukrainian-style transit map, this one for the relatively substantial Hiroshima streetcar network. Wanted to test it out on a mid-size, easy-to-draw system to see what works and what doesn’t before I tried this style on something bigger…like St Petersburg…or the Rhine-Ruhr…

Shrine icon from here, castle icon from here, other icons are original and (in the case of the Cenotaph) way too much of a pain to draw. Font is Meneghino, by the great Dmitry Goloub. The ligatures are wonderful, though I wish it came in bold.
