Originally commissioned in 2015 by art director Matt Willey for the New York Times Magazine ‘Walking’ issue, Subway 56 is influenced by signs held in the collection of the Brooklyn-based New York Transit Museum (MTA). This single style sans font has plenty of character and works equally well set in large or small point sizes. In 2022, we expanded the font into a multi-height typeface with 4 master styles: X, XX, XXX, and XXXX.
