Today’s Tubespiration Example: Harry Beck

Before Harry Beck’s genius re-design the Tube map was a complex, not easy-to-immediately understand map, showing precise geographical locations, which made it difficult to read or use. In your life, with the challenges you face, what is the equivalent of a Tube journey you need to make?

Draw a line to represent your challenge – this can be the first Tube line on your map.
• What’s the Tube map of your problem? Where’s your starting point?
• What are the different stops you need to make?
• What other Tube lines do you need to connect with? (This could be the input of other people or a trend or issue you need to connect with.)
• What do you need to simplify? What ways can you make the complex more easily understandable?
