London Underground is overground in India!

25 07 2010


This year i’ve been lucky enough to do quite a bit of traveling with my work: The Middle East, Europe and Asia in the last few months.
Imagine my surprise when in Mumbai recently (approximately 4477 miles away from London) and i saw a familiar looking logo at the train stations…

I found the above picture on saralhahn’s Flickr page (as i didn’t personally have time to whip my camera out in the back of the cramped taxi) and whilst searching through the site for more examples – i learnt a bit of the history of the logo thanks to Greenwood100…

Intrigued further by the history of this ubiquitous signage, i then found an article on the London Transport Museum’s website about the history of the London Underground logo

It seems that despite going through a few design tweaks – the red background and blue bar has endured. I wonder how it will develop in another 100 years from now and whether it’ll still be the same in India?
