Thanks to the folks over at the MTA for letting Underground Signs create some cool custom signage for the Unconference for Developers this summer. We had a great time meeting new people and talking transit.

Got an event coming up? Let us know so we can bring you a touch of New York City!

Or just recommend us on Tumblr :)

We get a pretty sweet mention here. Look for the custom signage we designed for the #mtadev conference!

Hot damn.  New York’s Transit Authority Embraces Open Data.
This is what I want to play with at the next Open Data hackathon…

Notable Mentions

We have been out and about bringing Underground Signs everywhere we go. The past week we have been making our presence known at the MTA Unconference and New Canaan art galleries. It looks like some people took notice:

We’ve created a portfolio of our signature Underground Signs creations on the Behance Network! This site showcases the premiere work of creative professionals, so we’re excited to join their community. View our portfolio online featuring urbanism, typography, and graphic design. 

The great people at Google and MTA asked us to create custom signage for their Unconference events this week. The mission behind this week’s conference was to build closer relationships with developers and the New York community. As licensed fabricators of MTA Subway lines, we wanted to be present and show our support. Read an article review from Open Plans about MTA Unconference and get a glimpse into Underground Signs for sale. 

The New York Times caught us at the conference as well. We met with writer, Nick Grossman, who excitedly enough brought home with him one of our signs. Thanks to the NY Times for recognizing us as the only "transportation authority-approved site for buying subway signs."

You don’t have to be a New Yorker to love Subway signs! This is something we quickly discovered when we took a trip to New Canaan, CT to showcase Underground Signs at an open art gallery. Thanks to the lovely people of New Canaan’s Elm Street for coming out, talking New York City with us, and loving our signs. Here’s a write-up about US in the New Canaan Patch. Architect and modern design blog, Modern House Notes, also picked up the story which you can read here
