As you may already know, we’re so excited for tomorrow’s North Brooklyn Pride Fest! Branding North Brooklyn’s LGBTQ Pride block party was a huge honor for us, and we’re so happy with the way our vibrant notebook-doodle inspired branding looks. We also got to work on fun illustrated promotional materials for the River 2 River Bash, a block party that will be kicking off the Lower Manhattan Cultural Counsel’s River to River Festival. For this project, we created Gus the Gull, a cute mascot representing New York Waterway at this all-ages event. We wrote about this project in a previous blog post as well– it’s been a busy week of creating unique work for our New York City community and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
