To celebrate the year of the bus, TfL have again joined up with Outline Editions to create 10 limited edition Oyster card holders featuring the work of some of the UK’s most exciting graphic designers which will also be on sale at designjunction from Outline Editions stand G14.
All the card designs will feature the bus theme, including a handy central London bus map on the inside of the wallet, with individual interpretations of the London bus.
The designers selected include: Edward Carvalho Monaghan, Jean Jullien, Kate Moross, MinaLima, Noma Bar, Rod Hunt, Malika Favre, Studio EMMI, Kristjana S Williams and Crispin Finn.
Edward Carvalho Monaghan: Despite only graduating last year, Edward Carvalho-Monaghan's bold and colourful work has been championed by the likes of leading graphic art blog and journal It's Nice That and Wrap magazine. He recently exhibited at London's annual graphic art fair, Pick Me Up at Somerset House and his recent work includes commissions for Adobe, Secret 7, Brunswick Review, Printed Pages and Gather.ly.
To celebrate TfL's Year of the Bus, I looked to create a bunch of colourful characters, each of which represents one of the capital's many cultural destinations - as well as the colour of bus line on which to find it. The astronaut, for example represents the Science Museum, The military gentleman represents the Imperial War museum, and the sphinx represents the British Museum. I hope people have fun working out what destinations the other characters represent!
