Metrocard Machine Interface Redesign

Class: Communicating Design

Assignment: For our final project, we were asked to identify a problem within New York City's subway system that bothered us and to design a solution.

Solution: Ten years ago when the existing Metrocard machine interface was created electronic payments and touch screens were new and unfamiliar to most New Yorkers. My redesign takes into consideration current knowledge to make the use of the machine faster and easier by reducing the number screens to be negotiated, clarifying language, moving popular choices up to the first screen, and streamlining the button design. The design follows more closely the MTA's identity standards with regards to color and typography.
