Calori & Vanden Eynden (New York) received three Best in Category awards in the 2011 American Graphic Design & Advertising (AGDA) awards program. The winning projects were wayfinding and signage programs for The Rockefeller University, New York; Port Imperial Ferry Terminal, Weehawken, N.J.; and Atlantic Terminal, Brooklyn, N.Y.
Set on one of the prettiest pieces of real estate in Manhattan, The Rockefeller University is among the most respected research institutions in the world. Reflecting that research foundation, C&VE designed the arched forms of the signs to recall the soft curve of chromosome pairs. Traditional materials and earthen colors make the signs look like they have always been there.
For the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal, C&VE designed ship-shaped signs that add to the sense of fun and enjoyment for travel by ferry. And for the busiest rail terminal in Brooklyn, C&VE (in conjunction with diDomenico & Partners) designed an integrated signage solution including platform identification, advertising, platform edge lighting, and cross-platform information signs.
