Russia's leading internet and graphic design agency has won an online vote for the best redesign of the Moscow Metro map. Art. Lebedev Studio is a design company in Russia, founded in 1995 by Artemy Lebedev. They redrew the Moscow Metro map for a second time in three years, with even cleaner graphics and a raft of new details and won more than 50% of the online vote. The firm's newest design of Moscow Metro Map 2013 includes landmarks, parks, rivers and alternative transit options.

The main features of the new map:

  • Preserved circle-based scheme from previous we needed to preserve. Stations still organized within and around a central ring, but the similarities end there.
  • Lines are thinner.
  • Stops represented by ticks; transfer points by dots; and larger transit hubs by mini rings.
  • The distance between stations is wider, making the whole thing less reminiscent of a crowded breadline.
  • Overall, it feels lighter, cleaner, and more spacious.
  • Includes landmarks, parks, rivers, alternative transport routes and disability access points.
  • Transliteration of station names into English is also more user-friendly.

The Department for Transport made minor changes to the map, which is going to use in stations since May 2013. Thanks to Art. Lebedev Studio for a nice, clean map that brings Moscow's subway system into the modern era.
