Wyman and fellow Pratt alumnus Bill Cannan (B.I.D. '60) created the boldly colored map for the 1976 inauguration of Washington’s Metro system. A pioneer in the use of icons in graphic design, Wyman was asked in 2011 to undertake the first redesign of the map to reflect changes to D.C.’s infrastructure, including the new rail line to Dulles Airport.
