How we did it

It’s up! Our installation at Industry City officially opened on Saturday May 10th. Thanks to our talented team, we conceptualized, produced and installed this show in only 15 DAYS. That just goes to show you what can be done when you believe in a mission.

 

NYDesigns’ installation at Industry City challenges visitors to consider the issue of diversity in NYC’s design industries. We have highlighted key demographic information of both the national and metropolitan design-related labor markets. This data, presented as a series of colorful infographics, is presented alongside portraits of entrepreneurs and students selected from the NYDesigns community. All are participants in one of two separate initiatives: the NYDesigns Business Incubator or the AAS degree program in Industrial Design at LaGuardia Community College.The individuals represented on the installation wall are not identified as either students or entrepreneurs, but a collection of individuals at different stages of a design career. This is the diversity NYDesigns hopes to influence in the design industries so that the face of design reflects the vibrant mix and variety of contemporary NYC.

 

Thanks to WantedDesign for the opportunity.
