Pembrooke & Ives Commissioned Poster for Ode to NYC, NYCxDesign
For this year’s Ode to NYC collection, NYCxDESIGN commissioned 16 dynamic designers who embody New York City’s expansive creative ecosystem to create works that represent their vision for a more equitable city. We were honored to be included in this group. Posters from the 2022 collection are exclusively on sale here.
Proceeds of poster sales go towards NYCxDESIGN and this year’s Ode to NYC charity partner Design Advocates, a peer design nonprofit that works on projects, research, and advocacy to serve the public good. Throughout the month of December, a series of design showrooms, restaurants, and small creative businesses will showcase the original works for city dwellers to enjoy as they shop, dine, and celebrate design this holiday season. The 2022 poster collection will also be showcased digitally on the expansive screens installed at The Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center and on-board the NYC Ferry fleet.
The Pembrooke & Ives poster is titled “A seat for everyone”. We highlighted the concept of offering everyone a seat at the table for discussions that matter to us all. New York City is the country’s melting pot; a place that celebrates opportunity, culture, and community. Through our expertise in technical drawing and interior spacial understanding, we transformed the figurative “seat at the table” into a literal one, while showcasing attributes unique to our beloved city like the infamous skyline and subway system. The poster represents New York City as a place that invites new ideas and endless interactions amongst its diverse community.
