You’ve probably noticed, but here at HOW we’ve been celebrating our most recent In-House Design Awards winners leading up to the release of the Winter 2016 issue of HOW magazine in which all of the winners will be featured. (By the way, you’re going to LOVE the issue, so be sure to get your subscription or head to Barnes & Noble on Dec. 13.)
This week we’re admiring an award-winning branding project from NYC & Company, the official tourism and marketing organization for New York City. The organization’s mission, according to nycgo.com, is to maximize travel and tourism opportunities throughout the five boroughs of NYC, as well as to build economic prosperity and spread NYC’s dynamic image all around the world.

NYC & Company admits that this project was no small feat. “We set out to distill the City’s diverse appeal into a single vision using multifaceted design elements, like variable custom typefaces and over 200 pictograms,” the team says. “The result is an identity that feels as inclusive, inspiring and iconic as the City itself.”
Cheers, NYC & Company, to a job well done!
