New Work: Ten Trinity Square

jr-trinity.002

John Rushworth has developed a brand strategy and visual identity for Ten Trinity Square, a redevelopment of the former Port of London Authority building in the City of London consisting of a private members club, 41 luxury residencies and a Four Seasons hotel. It is the first investment of Chinese conglomerate Reignwood, outside of Asia in super prime real estate.

The brief was to reinvigorate the purpose of the building and create a long-term vision that would also support Reignwood’s future investments in the sector. To do this, the project had to be positioned in a way that recognised its location, architecture and historical importance.

New Work: Success Academy

Success Academy is the largest and highest performing network of charter schools in New York City. Founded and led by former city councilwoman Eva S. Moskowitz, Success Academy’s growing group of publicly funded, privately operated schools includes 24 elementary schools, seven middle schools and one high school that provide education for nearly 9,500 students across the city. Primarily serving underprivileged children, SA consistently has the highest test scores of any schools in New York, regularly outperforming institutions in wealthier communities. Tonight Success Academy will celebrate its own continuing “success” at its Third Annual Spring Benefit.

Pentagram’s Michael Bierut and his team have designed a graphic identity for Success Academy that conveys the schools’ innovative educational mission. The system extends to environmental graphics that help motivate students and build school spirit at Success Academy locations, which share space with New York City public schools.

New Work: I Give An X

Only 65% of people voted in the last UK election, with a majority of non-voters being young people. In the run up to the General Election on 7 May 2015, Naresh Ramchandani, Marina Willer and their teams decided to combat this disengagement.

The result is I Give An X, a non-partisan, online campaign that asks people to visit the I Give An X website, pick an X to download and share as their profile picture on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #igiveanx. By living in social media, I Give An X has a relevance to younger voters and, by allowing them to wear a virtual badge of pride, the campaign can influence their social circles as well.

New Work: Bike New York


Emily Oberman has designed a new identity for Bike New York, a non-profit organization that promotes cycling throughout the city.

Spring has finally sprung, and New Yorkers are hopping on their bikes to greet the beautiful weather. Just in time for the cycling season, Pentagram’s Emily Oberman and her team have rolled out a bold new identity for Bike New York, the city’s leading proponent of biking as a practical, sustainable, and healthy means of transportation and recreation. Along with the identity, the update includes a redesign of the Bike New York website, cycling guides and other collateral, and looks ahead to the organization’s biggest events, the TD Five Boro Bike Tour and Bike Expo New York, scheduled for May 1-3.

With a growing network of over 900 miles of bike lanes and the recent launch of the Citi Bike bike-share program, cycling in New York is more popular than ever. Over the past year and a half, Oberman and her team have been working with Bike New York on elements of its brand identity and messaging, with the goal of helping the non-profit organization better engage and connect with all of New York’s riders. While creating the new identity, the team designed the promotional campaigns for last year’s Tour and Expo, which previewed the new look.
