The High Line Signage

Honor Award
The High Line Signage, Friends of the High Line, Pentagram Design

Originally built for freight trains in the 1930s, the High Line is an elevated rail structure on Manhattan’s West Side that has been turned into the city’s most popular new park. The structure was saved from demolition by Friends of the High Line, a community-based non-profit organization that advocated for the preservation and reuse of the structure as a pedestrian promenade. In 2011, Phase 2, from West 20th Street to West 30th Street, was opened to the public. The first section, from Gansevoort Street to West 20th Street, was opened in 2009.

JWT Headquarters

Jury Award
JWT Headquarters, JWT/Clive Wilkinson Architects, EGG Office

JWT, the international advertising firm formerly known as J. Walter Thompson, needed a comprehensive signage and graphics program for its recently renovated headquarters in midtown Manhattan. The most notable challenge was to create an easily navigable signage system for a space that takes up five floors and includes more than 100 public spaces. The system also needed to tie in seamlessly with the design of the new space, and to create unique identities for each floor and department.
