  1. Hey, I love making transit diagrams and maps. This is the Okinawa Urban Monorail line in my unofficial version. Kept it simple but informative. Included the bus stations as well as the airport indicators. Have fun. Constructive feedback appreciated. Chris
  2. Hey, I have run into a problem with artistic text and symbols: Whenever I embed a symbol in an artistic text it looks okay till saving. But upon opening the file again it is shifted out of the artistic text object. This can be easily solved by cutting out and inserting again... All the best, Chris
  3. Hey! — Quick project from yesterday: the light rail aka sneltram system of Utrecht. Kept it simple but wiggly as usual. The retro vibes are obvious. Did it because I was bored. Have fun. Constructive feedback is appreciated. — Chris
  4. Hey! I just wanted to draw something. Did so but it created a path that doesn't show in the layer panel. Assigning a stroke width or color or fill doesn't make it appear. As soon as I deselect it's gone for good... Starting new paths does bring the same results. Is this a know error? Using the latest release version. Chris PS: Only happened once so far and with the next restart I could draw normally again.
  5. Hey! On Saturday (03. Oct. 2020) in Wien/Vienna a rare thing happens - a tram line extension opens. Line O has been extended towards North to its new terminal Bruno-Marek-Allee. For this occasion I made a new O line diagram. Did it for fun. Enjoy it! And constructive feedback and corrections are welcome. Chris
  6. Hi! Just had the same troubles with a two-page TIFF file... Is there now a way to open other pages than the first one? I mean my work around is to use GIMP now... it's a bit odd as I prefer to use Affinity Photo for all my photo editing... Chris
  7. Hey ho! Unofficial transit diagram of the rail based transportation in (central) Cottbus/Chóśebuz, Germany. Focus is on their trams but Parkeisenbahn (narrow gauge park railway) and normal railway lines in that area are included too. I made it bilingual (Lower Sorbian) according to the information I found online and provided with other maps to make it a bit more interesting. Did it for fun yesterday morning. Constructive feedback appreciated. Chris
  8. Hey ho! Vignelli inspired transit diagram showing the Staten Island Rapid Transit lines in 1949. The North and South branches closed in 1953. Added ferry connections that run back then. It's anachronistic as the design is from the 1970s conceived by Vignelli for the MTA transit diagram. My approach is abstract and geography is only partially accurate. Have fun - constructive feedback is appreciated. Chris 🙂
  9. Haha yes, oldies but goldies Thanks for the input 🙂 will try!
  10. Eher sogar Dieseltriebwagen einer meiner Lieblingswagen sogar 😃
  11. Hey ho! My handsome cat shown in a new light - what do you think? Photo taken with my good old Nikon D90. Enjoy it 😃 Chris
  12. Hey there! I do transit diagrams and maps for fun. Here are two recent fantasy/proposed future metro networks which I wanted to show in nice and clean style. For both I found data and maps online but they weren't appealing. 1) Possible metro line for Brno 2) Planned metro line with alternative routing for Krakow Feedback appreciated! Enjoy them! Chris
  13. Thank you so much 😃 really glad to here you like my works! The answer why I do transit maps for fun is surely that I need to relax and in making those diagrams I have found a way to accomplish that. Also I am a fan of public transit so this helps to find always new stuff to work and create something. There was also a feature about me which is more detailed - maybe you are interested in reading it: https://affinityspotlight.com/article/chris-smere-i-always-needed-change-to-get-on-even-if-it-meant-starting-over-again-with-something-completely-different/ I know Beck and his works, of course and it's a bitty what has become of the London Tube map nowadays... If wanna know more I am always happy to answer your questions! Chris
  14. Exactly 😃 I could do it in rainbow colors on white... Actually I prefer it compact as it is for now. I see your point tho. Maybe for another revision in the future. Thanks for the idea! Happy to hear 😃 I do post too little here. If you go to my Instagram, Twitter or Reddit you may see even more of my stuff - you find me on all three under "transitdiagrams". Thanks for your kind words and support!
  15. Thanks for you input! Used some of your remarks. Here is the new version - it's more compact and better now, I think:
  16. Thank you for your feedback! And happy to hear you like it! The arrows are merely a second level of information to show which network is which. I had also a white version but a rich dark gives it another quality. Maybe you would have liked the white version better. Interestingly I get sometimes the opposite feedback when using a brighter black - then people ask for a richer black. What you do you mean by redistributing elements? I used the space quite efficiently I thought. What would you change?
  17. Hey! I make transit diagrams and maps for fun. This one shows what is left of both electric systems (2 trolleybus lines and 1 tram line) in Vladivostok, Russia. It features a small geographical map for orientation, so both networks are only peripheral and none of them goes into the center anymore. Constructive feedback is appreciated - enjoy it! Chris
  18. Hey! A transit map of a near future light rail letbane system in Odense, Denmark Phase 1 in green is near opening. The stations are fixed. Phase 2 in turquoise is not yet fixed and a bit speculative. Constructive feedback appreciated. Chris
  19. New edited photos:
  20. Hey you all! I did this one for fun as usual Constructive feedback and corrections are appreciated! Enjoy it! 🙂 Chris
