COLOR PALETTE

Color is very important in a map, especially a metro map where people are likely to go by color rather than names for their routes. I wanted to choose colors that represented the city as well as providing a warm and welcoming feel. Perhaps Moscow's most iconic landmark, St. Basil's Cathedral, has such gorgeous colors I decided to choose my palette from there.
