Great Movie about a Design Classics

Don’t miss this great 25min documentary on the London tube map. You find it at information aesthetics.
There is one central sentence by Milton Glaser I like most:
“…. All design basically is a strange combination of the intelligence and the intuition, where the intelligence only takes you so far and than your intuition has to reconcile some of the logic in some peculiar way. …”
This somehow gives us the limits how much we potentially can formalize or teach about (graph)-design.
Hard to believe that this map design is actually the prototype of all the subway maps around the world we are used to read in a unified manner today.
