The main idea of the project is to have a unique metro station. It’s based on having different pictogram for each station. The reason is to make it easier to find the way you are going to use. It helps the citizens of Yerevan, to recognize the station building trough the icons and helps the visitors to get used to use the metro station in a very easy way, and after searching about the idea I’ve found a similar project with the same concept. Let’s think about how the visitors would use the transportation during the time they are going to stay here. First of all they will make research about Yerevan in general, then they will decide where to go. And finally they will search for a transportation solution. I think maybe they will have a little problem in this part of the planning process. If they are going to use the metro station, I’m totally sure they will have a big problem remembering the names of the stations, because the names are so long and difficult to pronounce by foreign visitors. Well if there is an icon/pictogram which is presenting the station, for sure they will remember and recognize it in a very easy way, and by the time they can learn the name of the station. Before starting anything I had a journey using the underground transportation. The reason was to take pictures for every station in order to find out how they look like or if there is any symbol that I can use as an icon for a station. The idea of the journey was based on what I’m going to see at first when I’m going out of the station. After the photoshoot I have tried to draw some sketches for each station.. Then I had an idea about converting the pictures to black and white to realize the contrast parts of each building and I used it as a reference to create the simple icons. Until this level of the work everything went well.. but then I have found out that it has been created only with black blocks, so I had to redesign it to make something even simpler from the last design. I tried to make it with only one line… but it wasn’t a good idea to make a metro station pictogram using only a line.. After that I tried to mix them “blocks & lines” to have a the pictogram that I was trying to create it. Read Less
