The celebration is over, but the inspiration lives on. To thank all the participants and attendees, organizers released a video with highlights from NYCxDESIGN 2017, which ended its month-long run of over 500 events throughout New York City’s five boroughs on May 24. Retail Environments magazine was a media partner of this year’s record-breaking program.
Created in 2013 with the support of the New York City Council, NYCxDESIGN has grown in scope and popularity both locally and internationally. The program provides a unifying platform to showcase New York City’s diverse design community and its contributions to the city’s cultural fabric and economy. The nearly five-minute video of NYCxDESIGN 2017 shows an array of colors, shapes, and materials — from neon signage to crystal glass artwork.
