Farida Zaman’s Toronto City Illustrations on the TTC

The work of our talented instructor, Farida Zaman, is currently being featured on TTC vehicles on posters and guide maps. On the series, Farida says:

This was done for the Toronto Transit Commission as posters and the cover for the maps- (#ttcrideguide 2016). This is launching at the beginning of January for the whole year. Those who live in Toronto and take the ttc will come across it frequently. It was a really fun assignment to do, choosing the icons that summarize this fun cool city! I hope you enjoy it as much as I loved working on it!

Have a look at Farida’s work on her website and Etsy store!
