AIGA NY’s evocative short film about its 2013-14 Design/Relief initiative, released in February 2015.

Design/Relief, a project connecting AIGA designers with the communities of Red Hook, the Rockaways and lower Manhattan after Superstorm Sandy, was conceived as a civic design initiative by Turnstone’s Rachel Abrams and MTWTF’s Glen Cummings while we served on the AIGA NY board.

Together with other board members, including board chair, Willy Wong, we secured $200,000 funding from ArtPlace to realize the project. Three design teams got involved over a year, expertly directed by program director, Laetitia Wolff. Full credits for the project are at the end of the film and on the Design/Relief section of the AIGA NY web site.
