    Task: to develop a unified and modern logo for the Moscow Metro.

    The Moscow Metro opened for passengers in May 1935. From the outset, its emblem was not standardized and over the years was repeatedly subjected to spontaneous and uncontrolled transformations: it changed its shape and proportions, acquired contrasting contours and a tunnel-shaped outline, lost serifs and was illuminated by neon. Only one thing remained constant: the Moscow Metro was always symbolized by the red letter M.

    A large-scale research of the history and development of the Moscow Metro logo was carried out in the studio in order to understand what the famous letter should look like today.
