The Underline

The Underline identity

Friends of The Underline


Designed by New York’s James Corner Field Operations (designers of New York’s iconic High Line), The Underline will transform the underutilized land beneath Miami’s metro rail into a 10-mile linear park and urban trail.

In Miami, the metro rail is above ground. The bold line above the word Underline is a cheeky play on words, as it reinforces the physical reality of the park beneath the rail line. The use of underlining throughout the identity serves as a way to highlight words and graphic elements, from print to park signage.

The icon serves as an acronym, hiding a “T” for “The Underline” in the negative space around the “U”, and also mimics the view one sees when traveling on the path.
