SEGD New York Chapter Co-Chair
Anthony Ferrara has a natural ability to create three-dimensional objects in space. Taking ideas from two-dimensional drawings into form and function, he has a curiosity and a skill for using both materials and people to execute and innovate. An early interest in architecture and industrial design coupled with a solid training in typography and image-making makes him a leader in design for the hardscape/landscape at DesignConcernUS.
Anthony Ferrara's 25+ years of experience encompasses wayfinding signage, environmental graphics, master planning, exhibition design, identity and print communications, and he has been engaged with all phases of the design process from discovery through installation. He has led or designed for such once-in-a-lifetime projects as the preservation of Radio City Music Hall, the creation of massive scale imagery for the Oceanário de Lisboa, wayfinding for Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy Airport and campus signage for Yale University. Most recently he worked on the wayfinding and signage at MetLife Stadium and CitiField, both large scale stadium projects in the New York metro area.
His work has appeared in many publications including: The Wayfinding Handbook: Information Design for Public Spaces; SustainAble; Designing; TM: Trademarks Designed by Chermayeff & Geismar; Identify; Signs & Spaces, and Graphic Design NY and he has won awards with both SEGD and AIGA.
