NYCxDESIGN Poster Initiative

NYCxDESIGN is having An Ode to NYC Poster Campaign, paying homage to the spirit of Milton Glaser’s 'I LOVE NY' emblem. Beginning October 7 across the five boroughs, New Yorkers will experience a graphic tribute to their city.

NYCxDESIGN use local designers to create artwork representing their love for New York City. The poster collection will be shown in design showrooms, restaurants and retail stores and will be projected onto NYC locations, including Fulton Center, the Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center, and on-board the NYC Ferry fleet.

The current campaign follows the first Ode to NYC program, which featured messages of hope from around the world for the city. Posters will be available for sale on the Poster House’s website, with proceeds going to the Black Artists + Designers Guild (BADG).

Program Director Valerie Hoffman says, “We were so moved by the outpouring of love, support, and hope that was generated through our initial An Ode to NYC activation that we knew we had to continue the program into the fall. Aligning with a non-profit is a critical component of the campaign. We are thrilled to support BADG in their ongoing mission to create an inclusive arts and design environment through equity and representation. It’s a wonderful opportunity to unite the community and support our local businesses with the power of design and love.” 

A map showing all of the citywide poster locations will be available at www.NYCxDESIGN.com.
