Even though the current Metrocard design has been around for years, it could use a little updating. The card itself gets so much exposure and should be something thoughtfully designed. The purpose of the project is to show the many ways there are to design a better Metrocard and to promote better design within the city.
“I love the idea of taking something iconic and putting my own twist on it.”

The Metrocard Project by Melanie Chernock stemmed from a class assignment to “create a deck of cards”. She did not want to do something expected so she immediately started to think of all the different types of cards there are. The concept of redesigning the Metrocard felt natural to her – “I love the idea of taking something iconic and putting my own twist on it.” Creating the cards was an experimental process for Melanie. She had to make around 100 cards to get 25 good ones.
