An Ode to NYC, NYCxDESIGN’s poster campaign launches today, showcasing a collection of New York posters by local designers. They’ll be displayed in restaurants sand shops, and will be projected in landmark locations like Fulton Center, the World Trade Center Oculus and onboard the NYC Ferry. According to the official press release, the artworks pay homage to Milton Glaser’s iconic I LOVE NY symbol, and the initiative is a “heartwarming, graphic tribute to New York City.” The artworks “center around spreading a message of love and support for NY businesses.” The posters are also being sold by our museum partner Poster House with proceeds going to the Black Artists + Designers Guild (BADG).
Here’s a look at all 21 posters, designed by Alison Rose, Jack Travis, Kati Curtis, Kelly Marshall, Leyden Lewis Design Studio, Lori Weitzner, Marie Burgos, Sara Bengur with Veronique Gambier, Suzanne Tick, and the team at 2×4, with many of the creatives partnering with local organizations to support the mission, including Dr. Carol Bentel on behalf of ICFF, Harry Allen and Giona Maiarelli on behalf of Design Pavilion, Jon Santos on behalf of Independent Lodging Congress, Lora Appleton on behalf of Female Design Council, Manuel Miranda on behalf of AIANY/Center for Architecture, Rodolfo Agrella on behalf of WantedDesign, and Vincent Lin on behalf of IDSA NYC Chapter.
