Eddie Jabbour, Cofounder, KickMap
The KickMap was created by Eddie Jabbour, a principal at Kick Design in 2007. It was conceived as a communication design exercise to make the vast complexity of the NYC Subway System more comprehensible to natives & tourists alike. Posted on its own website, the KickMap quickly garnered very favorable response in the press & design blogs worldwide & prominent inclusion in eight books on mapping & information design.
Dan Jabbour, Cofounder, KickMap
Spurred by the creation of Apple's App Store in 2008, the NYC KickMap was transformed into a dynamic mobile app by Dan Jabbour of ThunkLabs. He turned the KickMap into a responsive map with an intuitive user interface that multiplied its strengths. Utilizing multi-layered maps, it presents the user with information like night service, on-map step-by-step directions, street maps & train schedules for every station location, push notification alerts, & GPS positioning.
