"Jabbour’s map looks like a winner. ... He wisely recognizes that usability is more important than geographic accuracy here. Subway map readers want to know how to get from A to B a lot more than they want to know the exact curve of the tracks along the way. Sometimes truth is less important than knowledge."

Syfte och sammanhang avgör som vanligt om designen är bra eller inte.
