Y13 Geography student mapping out a future careerBack
News - Jun 18
Luke F, a Year 13 Geography student, has put his design skills to great use creating an iconic East Devon Bus Map. Luke was inspired by the London Tube map, which was originally the brainchild of Underground electrical draughtsman, Harry Beck, who produced an imaginative and beautifully simple design back in 1933. Rather than emphasising distance and geographical accuracy, like other maps, Beck based his on the circuit diagrams he drew for his day job; stripping the sprawling Tube network down to a neat diagram of coloured, criss-crossing lines.
Luke followed the same approach with the iconic bus routes of East Devon producing a map that looks and feels as if it was produced by a professional transport group. Luke is keen to pursue a career in transport logistics.
