    The 7 train is notoriously crowded and diverse.

    For an exhibition about the history of the 7 subway train line at the New York Transit Museum, design firm The Graphics Office used Neue Helvetica to suggest the MTA signage system. The color palette was limited to black and white and the 7 line’s official color, “raspberry.”
