Dear MTA,

Subway Signage

Why do you choose to torture the graphic designers of New York with the crazy “O”s in the signage on your N/W trains? Do you think this is funny? Are you laughing in the face of a system many have heralded as a design masterpiece? Did you simply replace the carefully chosen Helvetica Bold “O”s with something more standard (Arial, per se)? Or did you go a step further and rotate each letter so it sits on its side? We demand (properly typeset) answers!

Frustratingly Yours,

The Designers of New York City
