Immerse yourself in the rich design heritage of London’s transport while exploring a selection of posters from our world-class collection, and rarely seen original artworks. Hear the story behind London Underground poster commissioning, from its roots in to later collaborations with a diverse group of renowned artists.

  In the middle of the afternoon of 1 September , London’s Victoria Line opened its doors to its first passengers – quietly, and without a ceremony. It was London’s first new underground railway line in over 50 years: the last had been the Central Line, opened in at the tail-end of the city’s second boom in underground railway.   Based in south-east London, design consultancy Rose has been delivering superlative work for two decades now. This longevity may surprise some because the studio, which has just six full-time employees – has enjoyed a relatively discreet profile to date. But in this 20th anniversary year, it’s making an exception, launching Rose: Two Decades.
