Two Twelve (New York) is celebrating 212 Day, commemorating 34 years since the founding of the firm. Recent projects have taken members of the staff to Dubai, Prague, Istanbul, Cartagena, Bucharest, and Bogotá, as well as across the U.S.
Dubai sits at the crossroads of the world, attracting visitors from all over the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and Europe. People gather to work, play, and experience this newly-minted metropolis, and it has been growing at a rapid pace. Two Twelve has lent their expertise to several large scale developments with multi-lingual signage that assists citizens and tourists alike in finding their way.

HART is Hawai‘i's first passenger rail line, designed to connect communities along the east side of Oahu and help ease some of Honolulu's traffic congestion. Two Twelve developed signage guidelines for the twenty-one stations in the system. The contemporary signage program uses colloquial Hawaiian wayfinding terms and colors inspired by historic traditions. The result will be a passenger experience that is informative and seamless and that can become another thread in the fabric of life in Hawai‘i.
Serena del Mar is an extraordinary new community being developed by Novus Civitas on a forested site in Cartagena de Indias, on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. Centro Hospitalario Serena Del Mar will be the first full service state-of-the-art medical center in the community, operated by Fundación Santa Fe of Bogotá. Two Twelve is creating a bilingual wayfinding system for this hospital, which is being designed by Safdie Architects and Tsoi/Kobus & Associates.
