Milton Abbey ‘tube’ designs go viral

Fourth Form Design and Technology pupils have been learning about Harry Beck’s iconic London Tube map and making their own versions of the design with their take on a Milton Abbey ‘tube’ map and signs. 

Teacher James Ratcliffe had developed his own design as part of the lesson to introduce the concept of maps within a design context; his design went viral and led to a local taxi company approaching him and asking if they could use his design in their advertising.  The result is currently on a 50 foot billboard in Christchurch!
