Type design for Lesoparkovaya Moscow Metro station

Overview   Process  

Task: to develop type design for a new Moscow Metro station.

Lesoparkovaya station of the Moscow Metro’s Butovskaya line opened for passengers February 27, 2014. The name of the station is derived from its location: the Bitsevsky and Butovsky forest parks are situated nearby. By the request of Mosinzhproekt (Moscow Institute for Survey and Design of Engineering Structures) the studio created a name plate to be placed on the station wall as well as recommendations on choosing materials and technologies for its production.

Monumental but at the same time light and elegant letters are inspired by the capital Roman typeface from the Trajan’s Column. A delicate floral motif surrounds the text and emphasizes the name of the station.
