moscow-based digital and branding agency none.ru have redesigned the map of the city tram network for the russian capital. the existing system is 420 km in length and includes 47 routes, which are divided into four different city maps according to depot. they are also designed in a variety of styles, which creates difficulty for passengers with way finding. the new graphic identity combines the entire tram network into one easy to follow visual document that is integrated into the urban environment. the moskva river and the city underground are the main landmarks identified, and the flexible structure means it can be applied to several local ones as well.
