The L!BRARY Initiative

Merit Award, Lot with a Little
The L!BRARY Initiative, Robin Hood Foundation, Pentagram

The Robin Hood Foundation initiated an effort to remodel or create libraries in ten neglected New York City public elementary schools with money raised from corporate donors. The graphic designers named the project The L!BRARY Initiative and designed a simple, flexible identity based on the word-mark. This was extended into signage and other environmental graphics at each of the libraries, each of which is tailored to its school and student body.

Please Take One

Jury Award
Please Take One, The International Society for Krishna Consciousness of 26 Second Avenue, Piotr Adamski

For the Krishna Festival in August 2002, representatives of the Hare Krishna movement in New York wanted to provide a way to communicate the Vedic philosophy in an inexpensive (up to $300) but appealing way. The mosaic was a board consisting of 1800 Post-it notes in various colors recently released by 3M. The image was a close-up of the eyes of Krishna, the personification of God in traditional Vedic culture, based on a photo of deities from one of the main temples in Imphal, Manipur, India.

Ground Zero Viewing Wall

Honor Award
Ground Zero Viewing Wall, Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, Pentagram

The designers created a viewing wall at Ground Zero, the former site of the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. The 13-foot-high wall, the most visited historic site in the U.S., is expected to be in place for the next five to eight years.

To the visiting public, the wall offers safety, accessibility, and sensitivity. To the government agencies charged with the site's redevelopment, it offers transparency (of process) and flexibility.
