The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) is proposing a 1,400-mile connected network of trails and greenways within the Boston region. MAPC needed a name for this network, conceptual signage design, and printed collateral for informing elected officials and the Massachusetts public in general.
The name LandLine was derived from a nostalgia for less technologically-dominant times. We wanted to revive a nearly obsolete term and re-contextualize it for a new generation. The hope is to evolve the word beyond simply being outdated, while maintaining its generally positive connotations of stability and human connection.
