This past May, New York City opened its newest public park: Little Island. The park’s avant-garde design and prominent location—seeming to float above the Hudson River—has made it the latest “must see” attraction in New York. SEGD member firms C&G Partners (EGD designers) and DCL (fabricators) collaborated with the park’s architects, engineers, and landscape architects to create a program of family friendly signage and graphics for this “oasis of everything fun, whimsical and playful.”
