UPDATE: Congratulations to Colin from Philadelphia and Guillaume from France - you've been randomly selected as the winners! Thank you everyone for participating. 

SuperWarmRed Designs has offered our readers a chance to win Massimo Vignelli’s limited-edition (unsigned) MTA New York City Subway Diagram. Designed in 2012 by Vignelli, in collaboration with Vignelli Associates Beatriz Cifuentes and Yoshiki Waterhouse, the diagram is the first Vignelli subway map to be printed by the MTA since the 1970s and is slated to be made part of the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection this year.

Using concepts from Vignelli’s iconic Subway Map design of 1972, the new diagram was informed by satellite data and rebuilt for greater clarity and legibility. Revised to reflect the current subway system, colors and nomenclature, the poster has been printed in vivid Pantone and Hexachrome inks on acid-free archival cover-weight paper.

SuperWarmRed has agreed to giveaway one 36” x 45” Subway Diagram and one 16” x 24” Subway Diagram Detail Series. Read on after the break for the official rules.

Official Rules: To participate, check out the diagram and detail series on SuperWarmRed’s website and let us know what you admire most about the Subway Diagram in the comment section below. Two winners will be chosen at random from entries received by Monday, March 9th at 11:59 EST. One entry per person. ArchDaily will enforce verification and remove duplicated ones before choosing the winner.

Signed diagrams are also available for purchase on SuperWarmRed's website.

Good luck!

“The 6 posters are based on an early idea we had when building the Subway Diagram on the computer,” says Waterhouse of the series, regarding the Detail Series. “Zooming in and out on our large displays to perfect small details, we noticed how interesting it would be to blow up the diagram, and immediately began making small sketches. A couple of years passed before an opportunity to use the idea arose. The three of us standardized the scale and searched for interesting crops, beginning with the interchange at Atlantic Av in Brooklyn.”
