man with a plan
August 7, 2011. I admire practical-minded people. Harry Beck was one such individual. In his spare time, he developed an easy-to-understand map of the London Underground subway system. It made traveling under the city and changing rails simple and easy. His design was later adopted around the world in cities with similar underground transportation systems. Beck saw that people needed simplicity. He realized that people wanted to get from point A to point B, and he developed something that would help them achieve what they needed.
