Make your daily commute a little bit easier with the Armpit Map

Armpit Map by Rachel Singer and Oliver St John

Everyone – even you, seasoned commuter – has jumped on a train without knowing it’s definitely going to the correct destination. It’s handy that those mini maps are plastered above the seats then, isn’t it? Not if you’re travelling during rush hour and your face is firmly planted in someone’s armpit it’s not. If only there was a way to make the best out both of these situations. Well, now there is. Some clever so-and-sos at Kingston University have designed an armpit patch, providing a handy eye-level map that can solve all your commuter woes. Rachel Singer and Oliver St John designed the Armpit Map as part of an open brief set by Patrick Burgoyne asking participants to respond to the tube network as it is today, both good and bad, to tie in to the Underground’s 150th anniversary. There were many interesting entries and this is by far the most practical, but we thought we’d share a couple of our favourites (because we’re nice like that). Carly-Ann Clements

Ever got home, blown your nose and not liked what you saw? This daily occurrence inspired Sophie Booth’s poster ‘Snot Healthy’:

And everyone likes to get their daily news and some extra lip on the way to work, so why not combine them like Jack Mercer?:
